Holiday Tree Lighting
The town came out in the rain on Friday the 13th of December to share the spirit of the holiday season! A big thank you to all that made it happen... our staff, Frank Burns, Stacey Leonardo, Kimberly Monson, Rick Lacey, and Charlie Orcutt. Our Volunteers, the Elves, the Winter Queens, Bob Potter (master of ceremonies), Jeanne Potter, Shane DiVita, Laurel Friedmann, Kate Aiello, Ashleigh Moro, Ruthie Viele, Michael Viera and Dianna Hampton Dowson. A special thanks to Lyme Old Lyme Middle school Band Director Carrie Wind, who organized over 40 kids to play and entertain an eager crowd. Thanks to our speakers, Devin Carney, Rich Shriver and Tim Griswold. Thanks to Lisa Carberg for getting the word out and a big thank you to our generous sponsors, Essex Savings Bank, Lyme-Old Lyme Chamber of Commerce, Beautigasm Makeup Artistry, Doug Hampton Dowson Photography, and Valley Railroad in Essex for lending us the fabulous Hauschild colllection.
