On Dec. 1, downtown St. Joseph was full of enthusiasm. Many thanks to the businesses and volunteers that made this happen. This was the eighth tree lighting.

The evening started at the Bello Cucina patio with the assistance of our “guest illuminators” St. Joseph Police Chief Joel Klein and his wife, Anne, and son Sam. The lovely tree that is located there is the gift from Steve Heymans Landscape and was cut, put up and decorated by a loyal team from the Minnesota Street Market. Thanks to Dan and Judy for leading us in carols before moving inside to the Heritage Hall. Heritage Hall was full of energy. The children were able to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus  and receive treat bags donated by Sentry Bank. Beverages and cookies donated by Kay’s Kitchen were a huge hit. The Central Minnesota Credit Union once again donated supplies and volunteers for making unique craft treasures to take home. The students from the CSB Sustainability Office provided support at the Heritage Hall and poster work.

Thank you Jeff Engholm and Rockhouse Productions for our PA system. In addition, financial donations from Bello Cucina, Coborn’s, Sisters & Co. and St. Joseph Action Group insured the success of this evening.

Winterwalk has been able to thrive at the same time and location as the St. Joseph church conducts its festivities. The St.Joseph spirit is alive and bringing fun to many.

The weather was perfect, the smiles were heartwarming, and the evening was first-rate.
