North Adams Prepping For Holiday Season
By Tammy Daniels,
03:31PM / Wednesday, November 10, 2010

City workers installed the main Christmas tree for the holiday season at Monument Square on Wednesday. The tree was donated by Joe and Martha Curro of Minor Road in Lanesborough.

It took about an hour to place the fir tree, which had to be trimmed down to 32 feet so the city's bucket truck could reach the top to trim it with lights.

A second, smaller tree came from Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Vachereau of Clarksburg for the island at the intersection of Marshall and Main streets. The annual tree lighting will be held on early evening on Wednesday, Nov. 24, the day before Thanksgiving.

Clockwise from top: The tree arrives at Monument Square; trimming the trunk to fit the hole; a handful of people were watching; guiding the tree in with one hand.
