The Christmas season arrived on Main Street Friday evening with the lighting of the Christmas tree in Pioneer Square. As they prepared for the lighting Councilor Colleen McKee on behalf of Mayor and Council welcomed everyone to the special event. She explained it’s the start of the Christmas season that may be celebrated differently by each of us and mean something a little different to each of us but the important thing is we are all here united in celebration. McKee added as we say goodbye to 2015 whether it was a good or bad year we welcome 2016 filled with hope and anticipation of good things to come and the hope is we continue on a united path with each other and are blessed with community prosperity.
Pioneer Square was packed with people for the lighting enjoying carols by the Community Choir, a visit from Santa and hot chocolate.
