It’s that time of the year again. The Choctaw County Extension Office and the Choctaw County Library’s annual Holiday Open House is scheduled for Thursday, December 12 at the Choctaw County Library.  We would like businesses along with school groups, church groups and other organizations in the county to decorate Christmas trees for our Festival of Trees.

Trees should be up by noon on December 11 and removed by January 3.  Certificates will be awarded for: People’s Choice Award, People’s Choice Award – School Tree and Best Handcrafted Tree.  This is a good way to showcase your business or organization.
