Fawnskin Christmas Tree Lighting & More!

Well, for those of you who did not make it to the annual holiday tree lighting–you missed a great time. Photos below are by Rick!

The famous Fawnskin Holiday Tree at Fire Station 49…look hard and you can see the kid’s decor hanging at the bottom (decorated pine cones)

This year’s festivities included pine-cone oranament making by the kids. I think it is sweet to see all the low hung ornaments on the tree. Also, the lights are only on the street side, so when the tree gets lit up–you get a chuckle if you are not in the right place because it looks like only half the tree is lit! The gang showed up for hot cocoa, coffee, chili and hot dogs. Thanks to all the guys who pulled this together. The big event was funded by local part-time resident, Don. (Hope I got that right but I am sure you all will let me know if I am wrong.)

Also, Steve Cawsey worked hard to get it going. Thanks to all. Also, checks were awarded to Fire Station 49 for the “kids go shopping” program. NSIA, Moose Lodge 2085, and Fawnskin Realty all forked over the dough. The selected kids get to have a shopping spree locally and many buy for family members.
