Christmas arrives with lighting of the courthouse
The Christmas season was officially welcomed to Bowie County Monday night with the annual lighting of the Bowie County Courthouse. Those attending the event enjoyed cookies and punch, a visit with Santa, and watched as children from around the area were presented a bicycle.
