Christmas Tree Lighting to Feature Marty Raybon on Dec. 4

Nov. 22, 1996

Baylor University will welcome Marty Raybon, lead singer for the country music group, Shenandoah, at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, at the north end of Fountain Mall during the 31st annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony.

Stan Allcorn, currently the preacher at First Baptist Church in DeRidder, La., will speak after the lighting of the Christmas tree. Following his message, Raybon will perform.

The Christmas tree lighting is free and open to the public, but viewers are encouraged to donate a toy for "Toys for Tots." The ceremony is sponsored by the Kappa Omega Tau service fraternity. The fraternity will sell $25 commemorative sweatshirts and donate the proceeds to "Toys for Tots."

"Toys for Tots" is a national charity sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps.
