The Upper Alton Association continues to promote the area with Sunday's Christmas Tree lighting ceremony at the Robert Wadlow statue.  This is the third year they have hosted a tree lighting at the site.  Steering committee chairperson Millie Hancock says they are ready to go.

Hancock comments

Hancock says Father Wickenhauser will bless the tree, and Mayor Tom Hoechst will light the lights.  There will also be a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.  It all gets started at 5pm.
