See the Fort's lovely lights

The Lighting of the Fort, which took place on Saturday, was a happy occasion. We were blessed with perfect weather – no wind, nice cloud cover and light snow. Many thanks to those who helped put it together. Thanks to Jim Shook who brought forth a great blast from the cannon, to Holly Davis and the Presbyterian Church for the delightful Nativity play, to the Venturer Scouts for the bonfire and lighting of the luminarias, to Dave Nanney with his lighted kite, to Randy Miner, Judy Heinmiller and Phyllis Sage for help with the wienie roast, and to the residents of Fort Seward for the lovely lights. Take a drive through the Fort in the evening or bring your sled and enjoy the sparkling scene. Happy holidays! Annette Smith
