At 6:30 PM hundreds gathered in the City Park at Grand and Lee to witness the lighting of the great tree. Santa was there with his sled and christmas songs were sung. I had the chance to see Mayor Pittmans "new" 1948 Fire Engine, a pumper with 1000 gallons of water in its tank. The Mayor said " I've always wanted to personally own a fire engine and now this rascal is mine." His wife Kelly isn't saying much about it, but Byron says "it'll grow on her."
