A new tradition to build on.
Close to one hundred people gathered to watch the lighting of the Blair Christmas Tree in front of the city hall yesterday evening.
City Council members and staff served hot chocolate and gave out cookies before mayor Rich Hansen flipped the switch lighting the tree and lead the crowd in a Christmas carol.
Council member Mindy Rump who initiated the effort, hopes to grow that event and make it a new tradition. She is pictured center, with city clerk Brenda Wheeler and council member Chris Jensen
