Lighting of the large evergreen tree on the grounds of the Old Town Hall took place on December 5 as part of the Christmas Fest After-Party.

It was a busy Christmas Fest Day for the Old Town Hall Rejuvenation Society this year! The Pie Booth, organized by talented volunteer Merleen Smith, was appreciated by all pie lovers again this year, because the best pie bakers in the area donate the fruit of their labors!

Guests at the after-party enjoy warm beverages and cookies after the tree lighting.

The Old Town Hall opened at 7:30 p.m. to a happy group enjoying warm drinks and a huge variety of homemade cookies while eyeing the generous selection of silent auction items and other ways to donate to the cause. The group of 30 plus people then bundled up to go outside and light the OTH pine tree. Mayor Bill Crossley thanked the community for its involvement in breathing new life into the old building. The tall evergreen landmark was then lit, ornaments made by grade school kids were hung and 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' was sung. After folks warmed up with a hot cider or two, the raffle drawing and silent auction winners were announced. The lovely crocheted afghan made and donated by Kathy Ashe was won by Amy Pressnall. The 50/50 raffle was won by Alan Voise.

The OTHRS Committee members were amazed and humbled by the generous support and participation of all those attending. The many hands that take part in OTHRS events throughout the year are much appreciated. Fun was had by all, and we're looking forward to an old-fashioned tree-lighting event again next year!
