A note from the Beautification Committee states that the festive season may be over but thanks still go out for the many strings of lights on the large spruce trees near the Century Garden (stone circle). And the Resting Place Garden (by the café). The committee thanks Bob Hume for doing this especially the cold days. The Laketown Hotel also was decorated with many, many loops of lights. The lighted trees as well as other decorated businesses and residences helped brighten up all those cold dark nights. Thanks to all and all the best in 2014.
