First a great Wheat Festival and now a Christmas parade and community tree. You are appreciated!

Could be homemade or store bought and decorate as a “community tree”?

Report Reply 0 replies · active 244 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down npts · 244 weeks ago Please DON’T plant anything at the “merry” go round about as there is a good chance it will turn out like the cement embunkments downtown that we can barely see “round about” now and continue to be a hazard to traffic. We need all the clear visual space we can get in the loop de loop.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — So what is up with the tree in the middle of the roundabout?Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Annarose White smiled when asked the question.“When I started here there were two things people wanted done,” White said. “One was to restart the Christmas parade.“The second one is to do some kind of landscaping for the center of the roundabout.”The Christmas parade, organized by the Sumner County Moms, occurred last Friday night with 18 floats. The landscaping of the Roundabout is a work in progress.Putting up an undecorated Christmas tree doesn’t really constitute landscaping the roundabout. But White said it’s a start to recognize that this is something that can lead to a beautification project in the community so many want to see.The tree is to be decorated White promised on Wednesday. There is water and electricity available at the location.  But she hopes it can be decorated soon.The tree was donated by Mill Creek Lumber & Supply and it was erected sometime last week.The plan is to put up lights, nothing elaborate, she said.“This really is a joint effort of the chamber and the city,” White said.The WACC,  and the city public work departments made this tree possible, White said. Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
