RANSON, WV - On Saturday, the streets around the circle were closed for a community tree lighting event. Santa Clause, Frosty the Snowman, Minnie and Mickey Mouse, and the Grinch made an appearance and took pictures with the kids. A local church gave out hot chocolate in the parking lot of City Hall, and it seemed as though the turnout was good. The tree lighting went according to plan, and the general atmosphere was one of joy. We took some video of the event which I hope to make available online in the next week.
