The Season Has Begun
It's definitely beginning to look a lot more like the Christmas season with the 30-foot tall White Fir taking up the view in Danvers Square.
Passing through Danvers Square yesterday, you probably noticed a sure sight that the Christmas season is quickly approaching.
Town employees trucked down Sylvan Street laden with this year's town Christmas Tree and used a crane to maneuver the 30-foot White Fir into a hole in the sidewalk in front of CVS and across from Danversbank. The tree is securely fastened with lines running from the trunk to the pavement. The entourage was also accompanied by police officers on detail yesterday.
This year's tree was donated by Dr. Michael Green, a chiropractor with offices at 133 Sylvan St., which is where town employees picked up the White Fir yesterday.
A second resident, Paul Nemeskal of Kenmore Drive, had also offered to donate a tree from his land, but it was too difficult to get at the tree with a crane. Instead, Nemeskal's grandchildren will get to help light the tree on Dec. 4.
The tree, once decked out by the Danvers Garden Club and Danvers Electric, will be lit up in a ceremony that coincides each year with the Annual Holiday Festival put on by the Downtown Improvement Committee on Dec. 4.
