Chad & Letha Hembree Annual Christmas Open House

All friends and Spotlight supporters new and old are welcome to attend. We know it is a busy time of year, so come and go as you please. For over 15 years we have opened our home to family/friends, (and even friends of friends) for a joyous celebration of our favorite season. Come see the Christmas Village with over 200 structures now, sample delicious treats, and eat all the chocolate you can stand while sharing in great fellowship and conversation.
