Jessamine County: Annual wreath event runs through Friday

The 11th annual "Circle of Giving Wreath Display" runs through Friday at the Jessamine County Courthouse.

Local officials, businesses, agencies, clubs and individuals will be decorating Christmas wreaths and then displaying them inside the courthouse during the week. The wreaths are available for purchase to anyone in the community through silent auction bidding. Bids will be accepted until 8 p.m. Friday, the night of the Christmas tree lighting ceremony. The ceremony begins at 6 p.m. and features live music as well as an appearance by Santa and his elves.

Proceeds will benefit Jessamine County charities that assist families with Christmas needs. Last year almost $1,100 was raised. For more information, contact Tami East at (859) 887-8079.
