CHOUDRANT — Even though the temperatures were unseasonable warm Saturday evening, Choudrant held its annual Christmas in the Village filled with vendor booths, musical entertainment, a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus, a cake walk, a sleigh ride pulled by a tractor and many more activities for the members of the community.
“This is our first year to come,” said Katie Pipes, who was accompanied by her husband and two children. “I thought it would be fun for my family, and my 3-year-old is really having fun. He just won a cake in the cake walk.”
The Building and Grounds Committee discussed plans for a parking lot and drainage improvements at Choudrant High School’s sports complex and plans to expand the parking lot at Ruston High School.
The committee discussed building a new, safer parking lot between CHS’s baseball and softball fields north of the new track facility. The committee also plans to fix drainage problems north of the parking lot.
