You may have noticed the beautiful lights that usually adorn the north bluff have been missing. Unfortunately, the tree itself is failing. Efforts have been made to try to patch it up to make it through the Holiday season this year.
This does mean that it is time for a change. We need to make considerations to rebuild or reinvent the tree so that future generations can continue to enjoy it’s beauty. Our goal will be to do this and have something improved, however equally as beautiful for the 2021 Holiday season.
