Last night Mercer Island had a big party and the Christmas tree got lit.
A few hundred people turned out to Mercerdale. With the mayor’s words of encouragement, someone lit the tree.
Then we all sang carols. There were cookies and drinks at the Fire Station too, but I didn’t stay long enough to go. It was a nice time– come on out for another holiday event if you missed it.
The Tree stayed where it was last night and refrained from driving, which is what we all should do if we get lit this holiday season.
