The Bethel Pentecostal Fellowship choir performed at the lighting ceremony in Patterson Sunday at the City Hall parking lot. In the blue shirt at left is Mayor Rodney Grogan, who joined the choir in singing before Santa Claus arrived on a city fire truck. Patterson’s Christmas Parade is set for 2 p.m. Dec. 9. The parade is to begin at the Place Norman Shopping Center and end at Patterson High School. If weather permits, a Christmas Festival will be held at the Patterson High School football stadium sponsored by high school community student volunteers.
