Volunteers Bring Christmas Spirit into Fort Valley Home

Some Central Georgians brought the holiday spirit into a Fort Valley home Sunday.

Jay's Hope volunteers spent their afternoon stringing lights and hanging ornaments for Carleesia Hinton.

The 10-year-old from Fort Valley was diagnosed with Hopkins Lymphoma about a month ago.  Jay's Hope is a group that helps families with kids battling cancer.

Carleesia's mom, Carla Stephens, says last year, the family lost a daughter to childhood cancer.  She says the family was grieving and didn't decorate.

This year Carleesia says she wants a glowing Christmas tree and lights for the neighbors to see.

Stephens says volunteers helping to bring in the Christmas spirit is a big help.

"This is really making my day," she said. "It's good to know that people care so much to come into your home and do all of this."

Hundreds Turn Out For State Rep. Tony Sellier's Funeral

More than 300 people turned out for the funeral service of Fort Valley State Rep. Tony Sellier Saturday.

The service began at St. Juliana's Catholic Church in Fort Valley at 3 p.m. and wrapped up around 4:20 p.m. 

Sellier died Tuesday night after complications from surgery.  He was 65.

"For the first two days my mind was mush.  But I've gained strength from what I see here, and I'm inspired to take it with me now," says Sellier's youngest brother, Victor.

Among those who attended the funeral were several state representatives, including, Larry O'Neal, R-Warner Robins, Allen Peake, R-Macon and David Lucas, D-Macon.

"Both Democrats, Republicans, local elected officials, non-elected officials, just citizens, loved Tony because he was such a darn good guy," Peake said after the service.

Byron Christmas Parade Draws Crowd

Folks hit the streets to catch Byron's Christmas parade on Saturday afternoon.

About 100 people waved to floats along Main Street.  Local bands also played Christmas music and dancers showed off their skills.

The crowd caught candy and watched Santa Claus and other parade favorites pass by.

Barbara Myers says she came out to watch her grandchild who's part of the parade.  Myers says she hangs out at the event each year to get into the holiday and community spirit.

"It helps the schools and the clubs, just kind of a show of what they have done or what they do during the year and get their names out in public," says Myers.
