Deck the Halls: Tree-lighting December 2, 2018

Contributed by Agnes Reuter

This year’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting event on Sunday, December 2, was a jolly good time! There were 40 children and 60 adults present. The Women’s Club donated a delicious assortment of homemade cookies to go with the hot chocolate and marshmallows.

Agnes Reuter started off the festivities singing Christmas carols with the children while waiting for Santa to arrive in his convertible. Santa and his elf (our own Bill Bauer and Lynne Hershey) greeted all the children and handed out bags of goodies.

The little ones each had a chance to sit with Santa and tell him what was on their wish list. Carol and Roy King organized a toy raffle that was enjoyed by many. During the event, a small bonfire kept many toasty and warm. It was a wonderful community event enjoyed by many.
