Once Santa has arrived on the firetruck and comes to the porch of the Cook Mansion, the crowd goes wild and the countdown begins to light up the tree in the park-10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1..... Afterwards, the strolling around town begins-people everywhere- most all the cute little shops are open late and many are handing out treats for all who stop by.
St. Lawrence church volunteers hand out hot cocoa and home-baked cookies to all who come inside.
The law office in town puts on quite a show with synchronized lights and music..a crowd pleaser, to be sure.
Just before returning home, we stopped by Harris Bank. There, we were greeted by Rollie and Janis and I was "awarded" a winning disc and collected a coaster set! Between winning this and the free snack of the month at the library, I am feeling like I'm on a true Winning Streak! Let the holiday season commence!
Our town is ready!
