Snoqualmie Valley Record


Letter | Merry and bright

December 14, 2012 · 12:15 PM

To: The many folks who helped make Snoqualmie’s Tree Lighting, Art Walk and Holiday Open House (held Dec. 1), so special; the City of Snoqualmie Arts Commission, Parks Department, and the Ridge Owner’s Association.

From: Santa and the downtown Snoqualmie merchants and businesses.

Downtown Snoqualmie was merry and bright, ready to host a holiday open house night

Lampposts and storefronts decorated so festively

Welcomed the season and beckoned invitingly

Artworks were hung by the fireside with care

In hope that admirers would soon be there

There was no rain, not a drop from the sky

Organizers breathed a much-relieved sigh

Children, their parents, friends and relatives, too

All the community gathered as the train whistle blew

Railroad Park glimmered with colorful light

The gazebo’s glow warmed the cool winter’s night

From musicians and choirs, carols did ring

Then the crowd joined in and started to sing

On came the engine with Santa full of glee

Everyone clapped and cheered as he lit up the tree

Wagon rides, treats, warm drinks did delight

It couldn’t have been a more wonderful night!

As dictated to Santa’s elf, Wendy Thomas, at Carmichael’s True Value Hardware in Snoqualmie
