Alford Christmas Festival a huge success Peyton Gay

Saturday, December 15th, a group called WeGo, from Canton, Alabama, came to the Town of Alford and held a Christmas festival. This group adopted the Town after Hurricane Michael and helped in the recovery after the storm. The event was held at the Alford Community Center and park. There was live music, booths, inflatables, and other activities for children. 

The people of the town were each were given a holiday meal of turkey and dressing with all the compliments to go with it. Each child was given a toy for Christmas. 

The Town of Alford also received a check for $50,000 from the Department of Environmental Protection Division of Recreation and Parks to continue improvements at the town park. The check was presented to Alford Mayor, George Gay, by Assistant Director of State Parks Chuck Hatcher, and Representative Brad Drake.
