Thank you for joining us for an Old Fashioned Christmas Event
December 8, 2015 – Over 200 guests enjoyed an Old Fashioned Christmas Event hosted by Murphy-Wall State Bank and Trust Company on a cool crisp December evening held on the bank's parking lot in downtown Pinckneyville. Partakers were asked to donate a food item or a new or slightly used coat that would be donated to local charity groups. Many enjoyed sights and sounds reminiscent of yesteryear - the clip-clop of the horses' hooves and jingle bells as wagon rides made a trip around the square; the melodic voices of a choir singing favorite Christmas carols; a treat to the taste of homemade cookies, popcorn and a warm drink of cocoa or wassail to be enjoyed by one of five crackling wood fires. After enjoying the warmth and smell of the bonfires, several took advantage of the decorated sleigh for an opportunity to take a family Christmas portrait.
Adding to the evening's warm Yuletide season atmosphere were the beautiful voices of the PCHS Choir directed by Amber Nichols and Steve Cannedy; Nelson Rule's surrey wagon and team of horses driven by Roger Lee and Marvin Kuhnert; and A team of Clydesdales and handmade wagon driven by Paul Kuberski and Jamie Bathon.
For those who are in need of warmth for the coming winter, over 25 coats were collected and given to PCHS to distribute to area school children. As a result of the canned gifts given by both employees and attendees, The Least of the Brethren Food Pantry in Pinckneyville received over 175 food items to help stock their shelves to be provided for the hungry during this Christmas season. Murphy-Wall State Bank President/CEO, Marty Davis, stated "We deeply appreciate those who gave so generously and are extremely grateful to the City of Pinckneyville for the opportunity to host the event. Numerous comments were made during and after the event voicing desires to see this continue as a Murphy-Wall Christmas Tradition."
