The Library Champion Award is presented annually by the Jefferson County Public Library Association to recognize individuals or organizations who make significant contributions to libraries in Jefferson County, Alabama. The Association honored eight Champions at its annual holiday luncheon recently, including three Irondale residents.
Dolores Hydock - local actress, writer and storyteller - was recognized by the Public Libraries in Jefferson County for her many years of support to local libraries and literacy. Ann Steves and Sue Sweatt were named Champions for their outstanding efforts with the Friends of Irondale Public Library since 2011.
We are proud to have these ladies serving in the Irondale community! For more information, read here.
We certainly hope you didn't let a little weather keep you from the Irondale Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony on Saturday! A great crowd of spectators and participants experienced everything from mist to sun to ... snow! (Check out our photos here.)
The parade started - as every memorable Irondale parade has - with the Mountie Marching Band, and ended with the arrival of Santa Claus! Of course, there were thirty-plus entries in between that waved and tossed candy to spectators.
The parade's Grand Marshal - Nancy Moore Atchison, who played Little Idgie Threadgoode in Fried Green Tomatoes - and her son helped City Council President Bobby Joe Wilson light the Christmas tree in front of City Hall, where everyone was treated to special Christmas music by a choral group from Jefferson Christian Academy and the Mountie Marching Band.
Greater Irondale Chamber of Commerce President David Spivey thanked the crowd for coming and announced the winners for best parade entries: (3) Irondale Senior Center, (2) Grantswood Community School PTA, and (1) SVHS Diamond Dolls.
The Chamber expresses a thank you to all the volunteers and to the following for their extra assistance in bringing this Christmas Parade to Irondale:
City of Irondale Fire, Police, and Public Works Depts.
Exchange Club of Irondale
