Jackson Creek Christmas Cruise promises to be a holiday highlight

Although the preprinted tickets for the Jackson Creek Christmas Cruise on December 14 (rain date December 15) have sold out, usually there are “no shows” for every cruise. If a few ticket-holders don’t show up, these seats will be available.  You may be lucky enough to get to cruise but, if not, you will get complimentary apple cider, homemade cookies, and a visit with your friends and neighbors at the Deltaville Community Association (DCA) building. How good is that?

The DCA encourages all businesses and homeowners along General Puller Hwy., Lovers Lane, and the two branches of Jackson Creek to decorate their buildings, homes, yards, and docks. Our residents and visitors look forward to this event all year. Let’s make Deltaville proud by putting up colorful holiday displays.

This year there will be again a judged contest for the best confection and a people’s choice award. An entry doesn’t have to be a traditional cookie, but it must be homemade and in individual portions. Two $50 gift certificates will be given away as prizes—one from J&W Seafood and one from Nauti Nell’s.

If you plan to compete for the judged cookie contest, you must deliver your entry to the Deltaville Community Center between 1-4 p.m. on December 14. Entries can also be left at Nauti Nell’s on the same date between 10 a.m.-1 p.m. These times apply only to the judged contest.

For the people’s choice award you can deliver your creation any time that evening, but the earlier the better. You don’t need to compete in the contest to bring cookies. Usually attendees consume approximately 45 dozen cookies during the evening so any edible contribution is enthusiastically welcomed. 

Doors will open at the DCA community center at 4 p.m. Please arrive 15 minutes before your cruise is scheduled to leave. Cleanup starts at 8:30 p.m. and the building will close after the last cruise-goers return. For the 8 p.m. cruise plan to have your cider and cookies before the cruise departs.

If you would like to help serve in the building, contact Marsha Norton at 804-815-1071. If you would like to volunteer at the dock, call Lud Kimbrough at 804-514-5858, and if you have any questions call Raynell Smith at 804-815-3102.
