Citizens for a Better Williams Continues an 80 Year Old Tradition

[slideshow_deploy id=’68049′]

On Sunday, December 30, 2014, members of the Citizens for a Better Williams and Maxwell Fire Department traveled into the western hills in search of the perfect town tree.

Working collectively, the two organizations selected a particular tree for their communities, continuing an eighty-year-old tradition.

The Citizens for a Better Williams currently sponsors the Christmas Tree that is on display in Town Square, a tradition once started by the Williams Fire Department in the 1930’s and later discontinued in the late 1990’s when the department planted a permanent tree at the station.

In 2008, the Citizens for a Better Williams teamed up with the community of Maxwell to help continue this tradition.

‚ÄúOur community could not continue this tradition without the aid of the Maxwell Fire Department,‚ÄĚ said Citizens for a Better Williams President, Andi Armstrong, ‚Äúthis is a collective effort of many volunteers.‚ÄĚ

In addition to the Maxwell Fire Department, the Williams Town Square Tree is made possible through the help of the Williams Public Works Department, Bell Heavy Haul, and the Williams Fire Department.

‚ÄúIt is wonderful to continue the tradition and to display such a beautiful tree,‚ÄĚ said Armstrong.

The Williams Town Square Tree stands approximately 48’ tall and will be on display throughout the holiday season. The tree will be lit ceremoniously during the Festival of Lights on Saturday, December 13, 2014 during the Festival of Lights.
