Thanks for tree lighting help

I would like to thank all of the many Jamestowners who helped this year with the Christmas tree lighting ceremony.

It was pretty wet, but for all the simple joy on the faces of the hundreds of children and adults in the recreation center, we would like to thank the Jamestown School Tree Lighting Band, the Jamestown Chorus, Conanicut Marine and their ready team of tree guys, our wonderful bakeries, Slice of Heaven and the Village Hearth, the Jamestown Junior Women’s Club, the Jamestown Chamber of Commerce, Largess Forestry, Jamestown Boy Scout Troop 1 and the Jamestown Recreation Department. Sorry if I forgot anyone!

Following is a short list of those community-spirited folks who once again helped us ring in this joyous season: Richard Anderson, Jim Archibald, Carol Baldwin, Colette Baker, Elisabeth Baker, Jan Bartan, Doriana Carella, Andrea Colognese, Doug Chapman, Bill Corton, Gilda Codilla, Ann Deffley, Blake Dickinson, Steve Froberg, Pres Froberg, Karyn Kauffman, Winston Knight, Pete Largess, Steve Liebhauser, Maria Liebhauser, Elena Mc- Carthy, Bill Munger, Nate Nordstrom, Don Ostander, Ed Woodson, Andrew Rushton, Nora Santamour and Kimberly Turcone. Let’s get together again in the fall for our 30th tree lighting!
