With the Hindu New Year and the traditional American Thanksgiving behind us, Tega Cay can look forward to ending 2010 with many our own traditions.
Thank you for the privilege of serving as your Mayor for the past year and I will continue to strive daily to listen to the residents and concentrate on making the best decisions for the future of our City. My New Year’s Resolution is to continue to serve you in 2011 in a manner that will enhance our quality of life here in Tega Cay, while making every effort to build our City’s contingency fund.
As the holidays are upon us, the City is full of celebration plans. To start the season, long-time volunteer Fred Cormack will be honored with a tree planted in his memory during the City’s Annual Arbor Day Ceremony on Friday, December 3rd, at 1:00 pm at the Tega Cay Golf Club. Following the ceremony, our Beautification Committee will be hosting everyone with light refreshments in the lower level of the Glennon Center.
Saturday, December 4th, the Christmas Craft Fair will start at 11:00 am in the Tega Cay Golf Clubhouse. Our Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony will begin at 5:30 pm in front of the Clubhouse. This year’s Ceremony will feature the Fort Mill High School Chorus and rumors are there will be a surprise visit from the “jolly ole elf”, so make sure to bring your cameras. After the ceremony, please join us in the lower level of the Glennon Community Center where there will be plenty of cookies, hot chocolate, and fun.
The City is always full of beautiful Christmas lights and displays at many homes for everyone to enjoy, so grab your family and friends to join our Police Department for a tour beginning at the Beach & Swim Center on the evening of December 16th, from 6:00- 9:00 pm. Another tradition the Police Department is continuing is the Toys for Happiness drop box at the Police Station. So please pick up an additional toy for someone less fortunate. You can also bring your toy with you to the Light Tour to drop off.
Thanks to our friends at the Tega Cay Fire Department, Santa will be making one last visit to Tega Cay before Christmas Eve. Santa and his helpers will be riding with our firemen around town on Saturday morning, December 18th checking up on all the good little boys and girls, both young and old.
There is no better way to ring in the New Year than joining us in the Glennon Center Ballroom for the New Year’s Eve Celebration sponsored by the Tega Cay Lions Club. Ticket information can be found on our City’s website.
If you haven’t already, check out the city’s new website: tegacaysc.org. The new and improved website is more user-friendly and has lots of great information. Please let us know what you think once you have visited the site.
Please join Penny, Emma and myself in enjoying our beautiful city and the great people who live here this Holiday Season. May you have a safe and wonderful Holiday Season and a Prosperous New Year.
