Hatton sisters, Taffy Johnson, Tracy Parker and Tara McAbee, will host the community’s annual Christmas Parade on Sunday, Dec. 5, at 3 p.m. 

Lineup will begin at 1 p.m. at the Hatton High School baseball and softball fields.

Though there is no entry fee to participate, Johnson said all proceeds from parade donations will go to a family of Hatton in need. Each year, parade organizers select a recipient for the proceeds, who also gets to serve as Grand Marshal for the parade. 

This year’s proceeds will go towards assisting Allison Scoggins Jones with her medical expenses. Jones was diagnosed with breast cancer in February. She has undergone bilateral mastectomies, had lymph nodes removed, and she began chemotherapy in April. In late December, Jones will begin five to six weeks of radiation.

Donations to help with Jones’ medical treatments are accepted at Salon 101 in Hatton, according to parade organizers. Donations will also be accepted at the lineup gate on the day of the parade.

For more information or to to pick up an entry form, call Taffy Johnson at 256-410-6175 or message her on Facebook. 

North Courtland also plans to hold its first Christmas Parade this December. Mayor Riely Evans said announcements will be made soon as plans are finalized.
