Appreciation to tree lighting volunteers

I would like to thank all of the Jamestowners who helped this year with the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.

For all the wonderful cheer and the simple joy on the faces of all attending we would like to thank all the gang at Conanicut Marine, the Jamestown Recreation Department, Leland Brown and the Jamestown School Tree Lighting Band, B.J. Whitehouse and the Jamestown Community Chorus, Doriana Carella and Andreas Colognese from the Village Hearth, Steve and Maria Liebhauser of Slice of Heaven, the chef of the Bay Voyage Inn, the Jamestown Women’s Club, the Jamestown Chamber of Commerce, Jim Archibald and Boy Scout Troop 1, the Pete Largess of Largess Forestry, David Urban of the Secret Garden and Pat Matulaitis of National Grid who helped us get the wires out of the limbs of the tree donated by our kind and generous donor, Mickie Musselman.

Following is a short list of those community spirited folks who once again helped us ring in this joyous season: Rick Anderson, Colette Baker, Melissa Barry, Chip Baertlein, Fred Bartlet, Jana- Lee Barton, Gilda Bullard, Doug Chapman, Jack Christie, Ann Deffl ey, Blake Dickinson, Tim Dwyer, Steve Froburg, Pres Froburg, Arlene Hunsbach, Andrew Kallfelz, Winston Knight, Bill Munger, Steve Munger, Nate Nordstrom, Rob Packer, Andrew Rushton, Janet Smith, Will Spahr, and Bob Tambo.

Sorry if I forgot anyone. Don’t forget, all of the ornaments on the tree have names on them from generous donors to event supplies. If you would like to be on the tree, call me at 423-9621. Merry Christmas to all.
Mark Baker
