The 2015 Stockade Christmas/Holiday tree, a lanky-but-shapely balsam, arrived about 10 AM today, and was up and decorated with a simple string of lights by 11:00. Thanks again to the Saratoga Tree Nursery for donating the tree, and to its Stockade staffer Susannah Hand for her good taste choosing this year’s beauty. A big nod to Colleen Macauley, who handled the arrival, erection, and decoration of the Tree for the Stockade Association.
The 2015 Stockade Tree Lighting will be this Sunday, December 6, at 5:30 PM at Lawrence Circle, followed by an Afterglow Party at 1st Presbyterian Church’s Mekeel Hall. Go here to see our coverage of the “2014 tree lighting“.
This Slideshow captures the City’s jolly crew putting the Tree up for us, under Colleen’s watchful eye, and with Nick Crane again doing the honors placing the Star and stringing lights from the bucket, and Herb kibitzing from ground-level.
