Hyde Park residents and friends gathered on Friday, Dec. 7, at St. Teresa’s Parish Hall for the annual Lighting Ceremony in memory, honor and celebration of loved ones. The Hyde Park Community Circle sponsors the Lighting Ceremony.

Jack Anderson, the master of ceremonies, also honored local veterans on that day of remembrance of Pearl Harbor 77 years ago. The speaker system purchased by the select board was available for the reading of the 222 names honored.

Paine’s Christmas Trees in Morrisville made the wreaths and garland. The wreaths were hung on the front of the town garage in Hyde Park and at the Grange Hall in North Hyde Park.

Deb Henderson received light orders. Village General Manager Carol Robertson and Dan Young orchestrated the lighting of the streetlights. Norm and Betty Andrews manned the guest book.

As the names of the loved ones and their donors were read by George Cook and Denise Greene, lights were lit by Greg and Eileen Paus and Sigh and Sally Searles.

While the adults were participating in the Lighting Ceremony, young children and their parents were at the Lanpher Memorial Library listening to stories about mittens read by Frosty the Snowman (Sarah Clark) and singing with Nate Perham and Mark Isselhardt. Susan Hayes worked with the children on their mitten craft project.

After the ceremony, families were transported by the Polar Express bus, donated by Lamoille Valley Transport, to the parish hall for a time of fellowship and refreshments. Cookies were provided by Barb Potter, Teresa Farquharson, Betty Courchaine, Kim Lambert, Melanie Dickinson, Gina Jenkins and Gerette Buglion. Hot chocolate was made by Teresa Farquharson and provided by the Hyde Park Community Circle. Cookie Elf servers were Everett and Melanie Dickinson and Denise Marcoux.
