Deployed military from Bladen County wanted for Christmas program

TAR HEEL — A Christmas season program will be hosted by Tar Heel Baptist Church on Saturday, Dec. 9, starting at 5:40 p.m.

The program will feature a message from deployed military similar to John Groban’s version of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” but will be used as part of Karen Carpenter’s “Merry Christmas, Darling.” The families of those who include messages will be invited to attend the program.

Anyone interested in having a message be part of the program should contact Ginnie Varnam by email at before Nov. 22.

A dress rehearsal for the program will be held at the church Dec. 6-7.
