Big tree back in Waynesboro square

November 18, 2008|By JENNIFER FITCH

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A 25-foot blue spruce was placed on Waynesboro's Center Square on Monday morning. The tree, which traveled on a flatbed trailer, received a police escort from where it was cut down on Geiser Avenue.

Long's Tree Service and D.L. George & Sons removed the tree from Janet Kauffman's property and set it up on the square. Borough crews assisted with the permanent tree holder they had installed.

"They did a superb, professional job," said Bruce Dreisbach, Main Street Waynesboro Inc. manager.

The tree-lighting ceremony begins at 6 p.m. Friday. The square will be closed until 8 p.m. so that people can visit businesses, drink free hot chocolate from the Lions Club and listen to music from the Wayneaires.

The holiday parade starts at 2 p.m. Saturday.

The tree will be decorated with 700 colored lights on Wednesday, when Star Electric and Sounds So Good audio also will install the equipment that will play holiday music outside daily through Christmas.
