The Nevada City Chamber received a beautiful letter from Alice Evans, that will be read to screenwriter Joany Kane at the dinner. Below is an excerpt, in which Alice (who portrayed Faith in the movie) talks about the challenge producers had finding a town as beautiful as those featured on Christmas cards:
“But there is one that looks even better; so perfectly preserved and warm and welcoming that you have to pinch yourself the first time you take that walk up the hill towards the church, just to make sure it’s real.
“Well, this town turned out not only to be the perfect town, but to have the perfect inhabitants, who were delighted not only to welcome “The Christmas Card” to their town, but also to loan out their diner, hotel, church and of course their people, who served as the most brilliant supporting artists all through the film.”
Please join us at the National Hotel to give Joany an old-fashioned Nevada City welcome.
