Paintsville Main Street
by Selene Blanton | Paintsville Main Street Director

With Christmas soon approaching, you might be looking for a unique one-of-a-kind gift for that hard-to-buy-for person. Paintsville Main Street has the answer with our historic notecards.

The package contains 5x7 scenes of downtown Paintsville, circa 1940-1950, of Malcolm's Restaurant, First National Bank, Sipp Theatre, Spears Service Station, Mayo Mansion, Citizen's National Bank, Murphy Corner, and downtown Paintsville from Court Street. The set of eight sells for only $10 and would make a perfect stocking stuffer.

I would like to thank everyone who helped with the tree lighting program on Monday, Dec. 8. A big thank you goes to the following sponsors and volunteers: Dave Kretzer with Add Sounds; Twin Resources; Maggard's Furniture and Belinda for providing the chair for Santa; Physical Therapy Services; Fannin's Plumbing; S & S Signs; Jones-Preston Funeral Home; Preston Funeral Home; Paintsville Funeral Home; Tucker Daniel, Lillian Wheeler, Valeria Meade, and Donnie Patton from the Johnson County Fiscal Court; Connie and Marla and the Johnson County 4-H Teen Club; McDonald's of Paintsville for providing the hot chocolate; Jennifer Hughes and the Pikeville College Chorus; Diana Wheeler from Paintsville Elementary; Kaye Hall and the Paintsville High Chorus; Toms Creek Freewill Baptist Church Fellowship Choir; Marsha Wireman and the Johnson County Christian School students; Angie Conley and the students from Highland and Central Elementary.

I want to give a special thank you to Chris Castle, who was one of Santa Claus' helpers; and Fred and Snookie McKenzie from Photo Magic for taking pictures with Santa. If you haven't picked up your pictures with Santa, please stop by Photo Magic today.

The Main Street board members who volunteered that night included Lora Suttles, Judy Castle, Jackie Pack, Connie Bayes, Peggy and Bill Calhoun, Fran Jarrell, Brian DeWire, Samantha Castle, Calhoun, Allison and Janie Salyers, and Lillian Wheeler.

Next week, I'll thank everyone who helped make the Lexington Philharmonic Christmas Concert a complete success.
