A message to our community -

After 20 years of leading the countdown to light our Christmas tree, Santa Len has made the difficult decision to begin retirement.  It is with his guidance and approval that we share this message.  Given his absence, the event will seem changed for some.  However, the spirit of the evening will remain the same and we will continue to gather and celebrate the magic of the season.  We will begin new traditions and are grateful for the many memories we have made.
