Residents visit Christmas nursery

The inaugural event already has one family planning for more.

"Were starting a family tradition here," said Penny Waltman, who with husband Ben and her stepdaughter Elizabeth, 13, visited from Crestview.

The Waltmans — who also visited the nursery’s pumpkin patch in October — hope the nursery will add more family friendly events to its calendar.

"Hopefully, they will do something for Easter," Ben Waltman said.

First Baptist Church of Holt’s youth group will get a financial boost from Oliver's Nursery, which will donate profits from its December Christmas tree and wreath sales.

Proceeds will benefit an upcoming youth Bible study at Camp Whispering Pines in Citronelle, Ala., according to Youth Minister Eric Reid, who expects admission fees of $195 per student.

Youth group members volunteer at Country Christmas, which runs 4-8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays this month, through Dec. 22.
