2010 Christmas at Twilight

The 6th Annual Christmas at Twilight will be held this year on November 20. The celebration has found a home on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and the change in the start time to an earlier 2:00 in the afternoon, has worked well for many families with small children. Expect to find many of your favorite things at Christmas at Twilight again this year. There will be an Elf Shoppe with activities for the children, and antique cars and hay rides.

The Taste of Wallace will offer a variety of foods, as will the food vendors. Entertainment will be going on throughout the event, the shop owners on Main Street will be offering special sales and refreshments, craft vendors will be set up along the streets, and elves and other Christmas characters will be parading through town. And of course, the celebration would not be complete without a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus!

Mark your calendar and make plans with family and friends to spend the day and start your holiday season in Downtown Wallace for Christmas at Twilight 2010

Chamber sponsors political forum

The Wallace Chamber of Commerce was host to the major political candidates who are running for office in the 2010 November elections. The forum welcomed candidates running for Duplin County Commissioner, North Carolina House, North Carolina Senate, and U.S. House of Representatives.

All of the candidates present did a wonderful job of presenting their platforms and positions. They were strong in their explanations of why they felt strongly about certain points, they shared their backgrounds and the reasons they were running for office.

Many thanks to Sheila Young and Lou Powell for all of their efforts to make this event happen, and thanks to everyone who came out and supported this event. We are very proud of the citizenry of Wallace for their involvement in the voting process.
