The big Lucas County Historical Society Christmas tree made a transition Tuesday --- from the town square (where it was part of a pre-Christmas display Friday evening) to the front porch of the A.J. Stephens House, where it will shine forth during the Advent and Christmas seasons.
The cans of Spam, used to decorate it Friday because the historical society honored the World War II service of Lucas Countyans (and marked the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor), went to the Ministry Center food bank on Monday and the small U.S. flags, which the wind would have scattered, were removed.
Rex, Bob and Jim loaded it it --- and I got to ride in the back of the pickup, holding it steady. It was colder than expected. Remember to wear a coat and gloves next time. This is a big tree.
We hope you'll enjoy tree --- and the season, too.
