‘Grinch’ to visit Tupper Lightfoot Saturday morning

Published 3:00 am Wednesday, December 5, 2018

When a grumpy hermit hatches a plan to steal Christmas, the plan backfires on him. The grumpy old’ Mr. Grinch then begins to think, “Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”

The story of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” will be told on screen at the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library in Brundidge during “Christmas at Tupper” from 9:30 until 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 8.

“Christmas at Tupper” is designed for children ages 12 and under and all are invited, said Garneshia Lampley, Tupper children’s coordinator.

“We have a fun morning planned with the ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ movie as the main event,” Lampley said “We’ll have Christmas coloring pages and the children will have an opportunity to make masks of Santa Claus and also the Grinch.”

The children may also write their letters to Santa for mailing in the city’s North Pole bound mailbox.

Lampley said Santa Claus will pay the children a visit and, there is a good possibility that the Grinch will also make an appearance at “Christmas at Tupper.”

The children may have their pictures taken with Santa at no charge and, if the Grinch hangs around, he might be willing to have his picture taken with good little boys and girls.

Theresa Trawick, library director, said “Christmas at Tupper” will be a lot of fun and all children are invited to spend the morning of December 8 at the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library. The library has a large selection of books for children to enjoy during Christmas vacation so it will be a good time to browse.
