The KHS annual Holiday Open House and tree-lighting has long been a Kingston Community tradition. Unfortunately, due to the Covid -19 pandemic we were unable to have our traditional a Holiday Open House, but we were able to have a “socially distanced” holiday tree lighting; furthermore, thanks to the generosity of Karin Linder, who provided new lights and the McParland family, who provided the necessary lift to install them on the tree (which had outgrown its old lights several years ago.) New lights for the tree and, even more, installing them, had been a challenge for several years – the tree is 65 ft tall – just 10 ft short of that at Rockefeller Center. Finally, the tree has been properly and beautifully lighted.
We are most grateful to Karen and the McParland family. In addition to the McParlands, Doug Miller, George Luck, Jr, and Tom Jacoby assisted in the preparation and installation of the new lights.
