2007 Christmas Festival
The 2007 Christmas Festival pretty much followed the same format as the past HCC Christmas events. Keith Hamilton provided the transportation for another caroling adventure through town. Of course, Jack and Ann Joyce didn't forget the chilly carolers and served their usual delicious hot cider.
Hyattville community members as well as guests from Ten Sleep, Manderson, Basin, and Thermopolis attended the Christmas celebration. Everyone enjoyed chili soup and other snacks.
Lin Doyle served as the leader for the "Twelve Days of Christmas" song singing this year. He added a new flair to the song by having the various groups first sing the verses in the reverse order starting with Day 12 and working their way back to Day 1. After that challenge was complete, the group sang the song in the usual order. Lin also asked that the caroling participants form an impromptu group and sing a couple of songs that had been sung as they caroled through Hyattville earlier in the evening. The group's rendition of "Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer" was a hit with the crowd.
A visit from the man from the North Pole followed the singing. Even some of the "big kids" enjoyed a chance to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas.
Following are pictures taken during the event. If anyone else has pictures they'd like to contribute to the slide shows, please contact Linda Hamilton.
