Con­tin­u­a­tion of DBA Tree Light­ing tra­di­tion ap­pre­ci­ated

Southwest Booster - - OPINION - Eli­nor Retvedt and Alice McCon­nell Swift Cur­rent

To the ed­i­tor: We would like to thank the Down­town Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion and The City of Swift Cur­rent for the tremen­dous job they have done main­tain­ing the beau­ti­ful Christ­mas tree lo­cated in the Mar­ket Square.

Some 25 years ago, we were con­venors for the BID Down­town Christ­mas Pro­mo­tion. When we ap­proached Mayor Len Stein about the pos­si­bil­ity of pur­chas­ing a heir­loom Christ­mas tree, he was so en­thused that we or­dered it im­me­di­ately so we would have it for the 1988/1989 sea­son. To our de­light, the tree ar­rived in time for Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties.

We were thrilled with the Christ­mas tree that year as we still are. The en­thu­si­asm of Mr and Mrs Claus and the elves have done a won­der­ful job through the years.

Again, thank you Swift Cur­rent and The Down­town Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion. You are do­ing a great job!

Merry Christ­mas to Ev­ery­one!
