At last Thursday's BoS meeting a request was made by a student ( Rebecca Vele) for the BoS to grant permission to place a Christmas tree with lights on the town owned Adelle Taylor property. Permission was granted unanimously, pending a means to provide electricity for the lights and a very long extension cord. The Taylor property electricity is turned off, so it was suggested that perhaps the Bank of NH or the Huggins Hospital property could be approached for assistance.
In any event, it is a great idea and is meant to coincide with the open house event organized by local businesses. The use of the property for this type of event seems perfect for the concept proposed by some that part of the property could serve as the center of town where the public could gather in a common area.
By the way, has anyone driven past the CruCon building after dark? They have wrapped lights around poles and trees and it has a very distinct holiday feel to it, much like Meredith does when the Inns light up all the trees. A very nice addition to the area that perhaps other businesses will also participate in.
The Taylor property tree lighting is scheduled for Saturday December 6th.
