Downtown Decorations Are Up!

Special thanks to all of the volunteers who turned out to help put up decorations today!

Toy Soldiers, Angels, Shooting Stars, Lanterns all aglow.  Behind the scenes, Santa's Elves are busy making Downtown look a lot like Christmas.

Each year, decorations are brought out of storage and thoroughly examined.  Repairs are made, light bulbs replaced and decorations are organized and made ready for hanging the next day.  

Sunday morning workers arrive and enjoy hot coffee and donuts (Thank you Wendy-Teague's), wiping the sleep from their eyes they set about their task; distributing decorations up and down Commerce Avenue, 12th Avenue & 14th Avenue.  

Following along behind, a small crew of city workers hoist the decorations high upon the lamp posts and make them secure.

And that's how the magic happens each year!

But none of this would be possible without the dedication and labor of love from dozens of volunteers . . .
 Bobby, Nick & Cooper from Kelso High; Wendy, Michelle, & Dawn from the Longview Downtown Partnership; Steve from the Lions Club; Kelly & Chris from Traffic Dept; Dave, Martin & Sam from Parks Dept. And anyone else I may have missed!!  THANK YOU!!
