Demopolis Public Librarian children’s librarian Kelley Tarpley reacts to being named the 2012 St. Nick.

He could be your next-door neighbor or your baseball coach. She could be your Sunday school teacher or your Girl Scout leader. Who are we talking about?

The 2013 St. Nicholas is a Demopolis resident who best portrays the spirit of Christmas all year long. He or she is someone who brightens your day when you see them or goes the extra mile when you need a little boost. This person is someone who has made a positive impact on your life or the lives of your children.

The Demopolis Area Chamber of Commerce and the Christmas on the River Committee are seeking nominations for this year’s 2013 St. Nicholas.
