On Friday, Dec. 22, 1978 literary genius Dorothy West wrote: “Now our town glows with Christmas, the lampposts along Lake Anthony are beautifully garlanded, the main street arched with rows of colored lights, and in the center of the mall a shining tree, the shops bedecked, too . . . In the park the bandstand beckons the eye with its blazing blues and greens and reds entwined and enshrined, and the great sea weaving along the shore giving majesty to the setting.”
