On the first snowy day of the season, Stillwater’s community Christmas tree was cut down and delivered to Lowell Park.

The 40-foot tall Christmas tree was harvested at the Silver Creek Tree Farm by Jeff Hause of J.G. Hause Construction Inc., (click on the link to watch video) and delivered to downtown Stillwater by Mike Raleigh, of Raleigh Trucking.

The tree will be decorated by a group of volunteers on Wednesday morning, with the community Christmas tree lighting happening Saturday, Dec. 5, at the end of the Twinkle Parade.
