To The Daily Sun,
On behalf of the Alton Historical Society, we would like to extend thanks to all who participated in the Town of Alton Light-up Night on Saturday, December 7.
The superb coordination of the festivities, spearheaded by the Alton Parks and Recreation Department, the Alton Business Association along with the Alton Historical Society, created a fun-filled evening of activities for many families and community members.
Thanks are also extended to Alton Home and Lumber Center for providing hay rides, Hannaford's of Alton for providing sandwiches, the Alton Police Department for a safe night, and to the many individual volunteers for their time and donation of refreshments.
The Alton Historical Society was pleased to welcome over 100 people for refreshments in our museum in the Gilman Library, and to the J. Jones Freight Building next to the B&M Railroad Park for a bonfire with S-mores.
Nelson Kennedy, Vice-President,
Alton Historical Society
