She was the true chair and did a ton of work to make this event happen. I’ve had several compliments on how beautiful everything was and she deserves most of the credit. There were also many others involved, but most especially,Paul Spencer, Kent Melville, and the McCully’s. These families spent most of Thursday and Friday making sure every last tree was delivered and hung. Thank you to all of our junior parents that decorated the trees, hung lights, chaperoned, donated food, set-up and cleaned up at the end until 2am! You all are the best!!
