Christmas at the Cabin event a hometown success

With plenty of holiday goodies, Christmas carols and hometown appeal, the second annual Christmas at the Cabin event spread plenty of Christmas cheer for Unicoi residents.
Organized by the town of Unicoi’s Historical Committee, this year’s Christmas at the Cabin event, held Saturday at the Bogart-Bowman cabin, offered county residents the unique opportunity to experience a Christmas past. The historic Bogart-Bowman cabin provided the perfect setting for residents to step back in time to a Christmas evening in the 1700s.
According to town of Unicoi Mayor Johnny Lynch, this year’s event was the perfect night of festivities and fellowship.
“It went great,” Lynch said. “We had a real good turnout, and everyone had a great time. It was neat to join in with everyone singing Christmas carols and enjoying the holiday season.”
Lynch added that thanks to the town’s Historical Committee, the decorations were great, and the event was well-organized.
“The Historical Committee did a fantastic job putting everything together,” Lynch said. “Lisa Willis, along with Judy Hopson and Gay Norman really worked hard decorating and getting everything together. All their hard work paid off. It was a really good event.”
Aside from sampling great food and singing Christmas carols led by Darryl Hall and Ethel Shelton, the event was hosted by Ronnie Lail, who dressed up as Samuel Bogart, one of the namesakes for the historic cabin. In addition, Santa handed out candy and gold coins to the children.
“Everything was warm and cozy and full of the Christmas spirit,” Lynch said.
