Around a decade ago, lightning struck a huge pine tree in Legion Park and destroyed it. This just happened to be the tree that the Federation decorated each Christmas. So with no other evergreen tree in the park, it wasn’t possible to hold the light up ceremony any more. Our then Councilwoman Barbara Burns came to our rescue and had a small tree planted in the park.
We have switched our Holiday “Bright the Night” to the California Avenue Business District. With vendors along the business sidewalk and a Winter Wonderland at the Law offices of Goodrich and Geist. Santa makes an appearance an greets the children at the Winter Wonderland.
