January 2, 2019
The winner of the Barry County Festival of Lights drawing was presented a check last week. The winner was Kathleen McCoy, of Cassville. After hearing her name was drawn for the grand prize, she said, “I’ve done this both years. I try and get my neighbors to do it as well. It’s nice that it’s not about how many lights you have.” Pictured above are: Elaine Phaneuf, of the Barry County Advertiser; Renée Brooks, of the Barry County Advertiser; Tonya Bailey, of Freedom Bank; Charlea Estes-Jones, of the Barry County Advertiser; Kathleen McCoy, winner; Jennifer Jackson, of Arvest Bank; and Jon Horner, of Security Bank.
