Lights Around the Park
In the year 2000 through the generous support of the following community spirited individuals, families and organizations our town became a better place to live. Our Park was enhanced by the installation of eighteen Victorian lights around the Park perimeter. They have been placed here for your enjoyment, safety and to show visitors that we are a proud community.
The lights are given:
