On the Whitesburg forum, someone said it would be at Food World in Whitesburg on Dec. 23. So go on over there and get your kids something!

I think sweet Bonny was poking a lil fun, which is a lil disturbing that they would make fun of such a needy area tradition, shame on u!

I thought so, too, but I went ahead and posted the time and place in case someone really needed to take their kids to the party.

Yes I agree I was being a little sarcastic. I apologize for that statement. I just hadn't heard anything about where he would be this year. Normally this is a hot topic this time of year. I hope " I Think" and Katie will accept my apology, and thanks for the information Katie.

marlowe has been dragged thru the mud for years
and this is a man, who sure, has had his fair share of mistakes and messes in his life, as we have all
but he has a big heart and the reason he began this tradition was to help the poor
the out of work, the downtrodden and helpless
it isnt marlowes fault that those who didnt need his help took advantage of it anyway
sure, some ppl go just to be a part of the party or maybe to get out of the house
but the idea behind the party is still right on
there was a time in my life when i couldnt give my child much and churches and other groups helped me so so much
one year my son was given a pair of good quality high priced name brand boots
and a great lined denim coat
these were not hand me downs, but new and someone paid a lot for these items
there are people out there with hearts as big as the out doors
like marlow
and since i was helped, now, that i am able, i do the same and take two names off the santa tree at the bank and help those kids the way my son was helped
well

I think the people that donate should get the credit, not Marlow.

The people that donate do deserve credit. But, you got to give Marlow his due. He provided a place and organization. Ive not seen anyone else put together nothing on that scale. Hes no saint in his personal life, but he did do a lot of good with his Xmas show.
Give credit

I think he is the best of the best and has done alot for the county and others from different states...so just mind your own business and get over calling him names ok.....thank you....I am proud to be a part of his family!!!

Marlow Tackett is like Santa to a lot of children in this area. So many would have nothing if not for the Christmas party that is hosted by Marlow. I know many donate. I have donated. But if Marlow didn't do this, who would? You? Me? Nope. The happiest kids I ever seen were kids who had nothing and came from his party with new bicycles and shoes and fruit for Christmas. He is a wonderful man. His personal life is just that, His. Let him live it. It is not our business. He is human like everyone else. I don't know him well enough to say he's a saint, but I've never seen his name in the paper for bad stuff. I've only heard wonderful things about the man.
On a totally different note, please watch this video. Probably the best thing he ever sang.

The way I see it, if they want the CREDIT then they should get this thing together it takes more time than what you think! It sure can't been done over night! I don't care what you people say about MARLOW he is a great guy! Most people are just jealous or add a run in or two with him, people can change!!!!! So get a life & quit putting MARLOW down!!!!!!!!!! Thanks MARLOW for a job well done, I think its a SHAME to our community here in Pike County that they won't provide you with a building to have your party,'cause you sure the HELL helped out alot of people here in Pike County, Floyd, Knott, etc......

Marlow Tackett was vastly superior to most of the Country "stars" of today. Fate can be a mean ba$tard who shoots a good man down, or a Clown with the Power to propel a fellow clown into the Top Ten....
