Trimming the tree

Georgetown/Scott County Public works decorate the tree downtown Georgetown. The 25-foot tree weighs about 2,000 pounds and required teamwork from Georgetown/Scott County Public Works, the Georgetown/Scott County Tourism Office, Interstate Towing Service, Scott County Roads Department, the Georgetown Police Department and the Scott County Sheriff’s Office to get the enormous tree in place in courthouse square. This year’s Christmas Parade will be Saturday at 6 p.m. and will follow its usual route starting on Memorial Drive on the Georgetown College campus, turn west on Main Street through downtown then south on Broadway to College Street before ending on Memorial. The theme this year is “Singing in the Season.” The tree will be the center of attention after the parade when Santa himself will arrive by fire truck and light the tree.
