Coweta Christmas Lights: Lamberts taking food donations at Lake Hills
From Staff Reports
Eric and Sherry Lambert are collecting food for the Coweta Community Food Pantry at the holiday lights display at their house in the Lake Hills neighborhood off U.S. Highway 29 North.
Theirs is among a list of holiday lights displays for 2012 across Coweta County.
The Lamberts request, “Be kind to our neighbors. Please remain on the road and not on their lawns. Also, please don’t block driveways and allow traffic to pass.”
The show starts at 6 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. It will run through Jan. 1.
As the last weekend before Christmas approaches, Cowetans will be out and about touring the area to view holiday displays that are the result of a lot of hard work by their creators.
Among other possible stops for a personal lights tour:
• 50 Canterberry Drive in Grantville, where Hugh and Alice Nash have mounted a display for a number of years.
• Cooper home, 620 Holbrook Road. “From our family to your family” is the blessing headlining the massive Christmas decorations on the lawn of Glenn and Susan Cooper.
• Yarbrough home, 205 Brittian Way, Timber Ridge neighborhood off U.S. 29 North. Features 70,000 lights, with synchronized music broadcast to passing cars via low-power FM transmitter. The family also is accepting contributions for the Coweta Community Food Pantry.
• Scott home, 14 Stillwater Way, SummerGrove neighborhood off Lower Fayetteville Road in Newnan.
• McEachern home, 755 Bexton Rd., Moreland.
• Berryer-Davis home, 6 Shady Oak Lane, Newnan.
Also, if you’re in the downtown Newnan area to view the twinkling lights around the Court Square, you can stop by McKoon Funeral Home on Jackson Street. The lawn is covered in lights, and inside is a tiny village of ceramic homes arranged on snow-covered stairs. Instigated by Lamar Wright, who was joined by employees Glen Burkett, Ryan Kelley and Adam Grandle, the project took four or five hours to put together.
