30 Foot Spruce Tree to Grace Entrance at Settlers’ Crossing
Combined efforts of Eastern Inns, Chamber and Shopping Center Saves Beauty from the Chipper!
Heads were turning on Route 16 Wednesday morning when a truck with a giant, 30 foot Christmas tree slowly made its way south from North Conway village. The tree, a beautiful blue spruce, used to grace the front yard of Eastern Inns in North Conway. Sadly, the tree had to be cut down as it was disturbing some underground wiring. Artie Adams, Eastern Inns General manager called the Mt Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce Director Janice Crawford to see if anything could be done to honor the tree’s beauty.
Thinking of the annual Lighting of the Rockefeller Center Tree Janice decided to put the tree up for auction at the chamber’s annual meeting, Oct. 30th. Settlers’ Green and Settlers’ Crossing General Manager, Dot Seybold immediately saw an opportunity. So, the deal is done, the tree is cut down and loaded onto the truck for its journey south. Now festively lit with energy efficient LCD lights, the decorated tree officially marks the start of Christmas and the shopping season in North Conway.
The annual Bring a Friend Shopping event this weekend, the official start of holiday shopping in the Valley coincides with the long Veteran’s Day weekend.
