In December 2014, 15 Linesville residents decorated their homes and sponsored a charity and the towns people voted for homes or charities that they liked giving a total of $785.00 to “Paying it Forward” to the following charities: Alzheimers, Autism, Diabetes, Hunt of a Lifetime. PETA, Shriners Hospital for Children, Linesville United Methodist Church and Yolanda G. Barco Cancer Institute.
Linesville held it’s first Christmas Lighted Tractor Parade coordinating with the Light Up Night and the traditional decorating of trees and People’s Choice award for the best decorated tree. The person or organization that is chosen by the people as the best decorated tree has bragging right’s and certificate of best decorated tree to display for a year.
