Bryant E News – Merry Christmas Edition

Dear Friend,

It’s Christmas again in Southern Illinois! This is truly one of my favorite times of the year. This Christmas season, I have been blessed to enjoy many of the fun events that Christmastime in Southern Illinois has to offer.

It is the honor of my lifetime to Represent the people of Southern Illinois in Springfield. I also find great joy in watching my children raise my grandchildren right here at home. I am truly blessed to know all of you and I want to extend my warmest wishes to you for very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Gingerbread House Building at Spring Garden School in Dodds

I stopped by my granddaughter Cori’s
school to say hi to Santa and to help build
Gingerbread Houses. The kids and I loved it! 

Santa visits DuQuoin State Fairgrounds!

Special fun at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds. So much enjoyed the time with our grand kids! We took in the Christmas lights, talked to Santa, ate cotton candy and popcorn, rode the little train, and made lots of wonderful Christmas memories.
