Have yourself an eventful holiday

--- — Area folks can enjoy a busy and diverse weekend. At noon Saturday, the Valdosta State University Blazers play Carson-Newman in Bazemore-Hyder Stadium.

Fans can enjoy a pleasant afternoon of football  as VSU continues its season into the playoffs. If  VSU wins, and there are enough people in the stands, ESPN may select Valdosta as the site for the next game.

Following the game, folks can enjoy Christmas activities downtown leading to the 5 p.m. parade stretching from Woodrow Wilson Drive along North Patterson Street to downtown.

There are also performances of Dance Arts and the Valdosta Symphony Orchestra’s “The Nutcracker” throughout the weekend; or Gingerbread Players of Theatre Guild Valdosta’s “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” throughout the weekend; or the Valdosta State University Choirs’ three performances Sunday afternoon of the annual Holiday Concert in the West Hall Rotunda.

Plenty to do this weekend, with many of these events scheduled so people can easily take advantage of attending more than one.

Valdosta’s events and activities are the gifts that keep on giving this time and any time of the year.

What We Think
  • Thumbs up

    THUMBS UP: To South Georgia Medical Center for hiring three cardiovascular surgeons. Randall B. Brown, MD, Joe H. Johnson MD, and Maurice M. Solis, MD, will perform comprehensive cardiac, thoracic, peripheral vascular and endovascular surgery services at the Dasher Memorial Heart Center. The three surgeons will operate a full-time medical practice and professional office named the SGMC CardioVascular Institute. It’s a much-needed addition to region’s medical services and South Georgians should benefit from their presence.

  • Thumbs Up

    THUMBS UP: To Air Force Lt. Col. David Rayman. The 75th Fighter Squadron commander recently logged 3,000 flight hours in the A-10C Thunderbolt II. A rare feat. In presenting a Moody Air Force Base story on his accomplishment in The Times, it’s good to see the face and know the name of one of the many pilots who cross our South Georgia skies. Congratulations on 3,000 and thank you for your service.
