The Kaysville City 1949 celebration will begin Saturday, Mrs. William Winters, Kaysville Civic Association general chairman disclosed Thursday. Taking advantage of the BEAUTIFUL NATURAL SETTING OF THE CITY HALL AND LIBRARY BUILDING, committees of the Civic Association are busy preparing on the north a bright, glittering setting to display the carnival spirit.
A nativity scene will be placed south of the building. A spotlight placed above the highway to illuminate the sight will simulate the Star of Bethlehem. Details of the Christmas plans have been worked out by Ray Ashton, architect for the project (Ray was also the architect for the City Hall/Library); Howard L. Blood, president of the Kaysville Civic Association and various committees Mrs. Winters said.
Mayor J. C. Linford will close the switch to set the lights aglow at 5:30pm Saturday. A theater party for the youngsters will be held at the Kaysville Theater at 10am, admission "price" will be a can of labeled food to be distributed to needy families by local Relief Societies of the LDS Church. Next week a community Santa Claus will make his visit to Kaysville at a time yet to be announced. Christmas singing and caroling directed by Mrs. Leland (Ruth) Frost will be a feature during the holiday Mrs. Winter said.
