We went into town the other evening for the Christmas parade and stayed for the tree lighting.
The parade was disappointing with only a couple of floats escorted by two police cars with sirens and lights. Had to laugh at that.
The local Chamber of Commerce hosted a chili and cornbread supper in the alumni building. Several groups from the community had set up tables to advertise their services. A Santa was also holding court for a few children brave enough to sit on his lap.
Finally around 7 pm, the mayor plugged in the lights of the tree sitting in the middle of the intersection, along with the lights in the park.
