WV Plans Joyful Night Next Week

December 1st, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Governor Earl Ray Tomblin and First Lady Joanne Jaeger Tomblin will welcome West Virginians to the annual Joyful Night celebration Tuesday, December 6 at the State Capitol Complex in Charleston. As part of the evening's festivities, the First Family encourages attendees to bring a new unwrapped toy for the U.S. Marines' Toys for Tots campaign. There also will be a special tribute to West Virginia's military men and women, veterans, Gold Star Families and first responders.

"Joanne and I are excited to welcome West Virginians from across the state to join us as we kick off the holiday season with this year's Joyful Night celebration for the last time as your Governor and First Lady," Gov. Tomblin said. "This celebration is a special time for us as we reflect on the cherished memories we have made over the past six years. We will be celebrating friendship, family and camaraderie–values we as West Virginians hold dear–and honoring our state's brave service men and women, their families and our first responders. We look forward to seeing you and sharing in the holiday celebrations."

The Joyful Night program will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the South Plaza of the Capitol with performances from West Virginia school bands and at 6 p.m. Governor and First Lady Tomblin will light the state Christmas tree, donated by Brenda and David Hanson of Winfield.
