a bright Holiday Tree Lighting

Here are images from this evening’s festive Lighting of the Stockade Holiday-Christmas Tree, and the now-traditional Afterglow get-together in the Great Hall of St. George’s Episcopal Church.

  • Warm thanks to the Stockade Association (especially Colleen, Susan, Susan, Susannah, Susie and Carol; plus Banjo Bob);
  • And to the New York State Tree Nursery at Saratoga, which again provided a fine tree. This year’s tree is tall and broad, and makes quite a statement next to the patient Lawrence the Indian.

 . . the Tree arrived from Saratoga on Wednesday, Nov. 28, with great promise, which was fulfilled this evening.
