In what can only be described as a raving success, the St. Michael-Albertville Rotary and Shop St. Michael groups pulled off a very successful and enjoyable evening for the community Tuesday night. Dozens of families from the area gathered around the newly planted Holiday tree for Christmas carols and the lighting by the first Cheermeister, Jim Pichler.
The celebration and fun continued indoors after the tree lighting. With hot dogs, cocoa, cookies and Santa, both kids and adults enjoyed several books read by community volunteers and Albertville royalty.
While no official headcount was taken, Shop St. Michael chair Bob Enright was very happy with the turnout. "We couldn't have asked for better," he said Tuesday night.
