DeSoto County Students Working Against Tobacco Participate in the Annual Christmas Card Lane Event
December 1, 2013

DeSoto County Students Working Against Tobacco Youth partnered with Drug-Free Youth of DeSoto youth to create a Christmas Card for “Christmas Card Lane”.

Christmas Card Lane

“Christmas Card Lane” is an event held by the DeSoto County Chamber of Commerce in which local businesses and other community organizations participate. The “Christmas Cards” are made of plywood with sizes ranging from 4’ x 8’ to 8’ x 8 and painted with Christmas greetings and placed in the park next to the Chamber building. 

Chamber board members then vote on the cards under several different categories. Unfortunately, the SWAT/DFY card did not win any prizes. However, SWAT youth are already geared up and brainstorming card ideas for next year!

When you are in Arcadia during the holidays, be sure to stroll through Christmas Card Lane to see the local talent's handiwork!
