The beautiful evergreen that will serve as the 2010 Stockade holiday (f/k/a Christmas) tree arrived last Monday and was erected and decorated next to the statue of Lawrence the Indian. The tree was donated by Jack McDonald.
As you can see in this slideshow, the tree is stately and shapely with its red bows and lights, and is photogenic from any angle.
The Annual Stockade Tree Lighting Ceremony is scheduled for tomorrow, December 5, 2010, at 5 PM, with a reception to follow in the Friendship Hall of First Reformed Church. Connie Colangelo has been heading up the efforts to get the tree erected, with Carol DeLaMarter coordinating the decoration of the fence around Lawrence. Jennifer Wells will be in charge of the kitchen for the Reception. See the cover of the December Spy for more details.
