Many volunteers help make holiday special

How quickly the holiday season comes upon us, and then it’s over. But it takes an endless team of volunteers working as individuals and in numerous groups and committees over many weeks to make certain that Christmas in Jamestown is so very special.

I would like to extend a big thank you to those individuals that helped with the several pieces of the 2012 Christmas.

Cutting and transporting the Christmas tree: Thanks to Rick Anderson, Blake Dickinson, Mark Baker, Steve and Pres Froberg, Peter Largess, Richard Buss, Steve Munger, Don Ostrander and the Jamestown police.

Santa arrives by boat: Thanks to Dick Alphin and his vessel Nancy B, Charlie Petit, Joan Goldstein, Gaelyn Dwyer, Fiona Eves, Lindsey and Brayden Dickinson, and Logan Weaver.

Tractor-drawn hayrides: Thanks to Nick Robertson and Bob Sutton for the rides, Lynda Sutton for decorating the hay wagon, and to Agnes Filkins for leading the Christmas carols.

Pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus: Thanks to Donna Wood, May Munger and Kevin Greene. Stop by and pick up your free pictures. You can also become a friend of Conanicut Marine Services on Facebook and download from our Christmas album.

Construction of the Shoreby Hill pageant manger: Thanks to Steve Munger, Blake Dickinson, Pete Largess and Ed Woodson.

The pageant tree: Thanks to Bob Sutton and his antique milk cart that transported the tree to Shoreby Hill.
