The Colville Chamber of Commerce, the Parks & Recreation Department, and Colville Together are collaborating again this year to decorate the downtown Christmas Tree.
The tree has been donated by Hancock Forest Management, from land that they manage. It is a natural tree from the forest surrounding Colville. The tree is being cut down and delivered to Astor Street by Trent Lang of Vaagen Brothers Lumber and other Vaagen Brothers employees. He has provided his services and time for numerous years to put up our Christmas Tree.
For the second year in a row, Josh Anderson of Vaagen Brothers Lumber, has donated over 400 cut rounds for the local school kids to decorate. Over 15 teachers and their classes are participating this year to help decorate the tree. The Chamber of Commerce has also donated new ornaments and additional lights to create a festive tree.
The Christmas Tree was lit November 29th in Astor Court starting at 5pm. Chamber of Commerce sponsored the event and has organized live music and warm beverages. Panorama 4H 4 Paws will be selling cookies for a fund raiser. Santa arrived at 6pm to light the tree and was available for pictures at Saundra’s.
It was great to see you all Downtown! Merry Christmas!
