Island decks out for the Christmas and Junkanoo season. By the first
week of December homes and businesses were showing signs of the season.
Town launches Christmas "Spaceship"
The tree lighting ceremony at the Administrator's residence December
10 featured caroling by the interfaith community choir and a countdown
to the big moment of lighting the "tree" designed by Harvey
Roberts which was actually a tall pole topped by a star and multiple
strands of lights.
Administrator Johnson got a good laugh from the crowd by saying
his first sight of the plan for this arrangement looked to him like
"the Christmas spaceship."
Welcoming remarks were also made by Community Council members Daryl
Johnson, Harvey Roberts, and Nora Albury. Curtlin Johnson said the
opening and closing prayer.
