The beautiful 2016 community Christmas Tree on the courthouse lawn in downtown Jasper for the Christmas and holiday season has been donated by Scott & Marsha Jones of Jasper.
This beautiful tree serves as the main Christmas tree for Jasper – for the holiday season.
The Jasper Chamber of Commerce says lights on the tree, and garland on the street poles were financed by Patoka 2000.
In addition to the planters and light streamers on the Patoka River Bridge, red and green flags add color to this historic bridge.
Contributions were received by individuals in the community in memory of loved ones, or in honor of special occasions.
The lights on the small bushes and the trees and perimeter lighting on many of the downtown buildings were financed by individual merchants and also by the Greater Downtown Jasper Business Association.
The City Electric Department are being credited for an outstanding job again this year of installing all of the decorations, garlands, lights as well as the tree.
They also attached the red bows to the tree and were responsible for designing, making and placing the star at the top of the main tree. The new lights strung from the courthouse will stay up all year. They are intended to be used for various holidays during the year.
Through the efforts of Patoka 2000, the city Electric Department, Al Kiefer, the Greater Downtown Jasper Business Association, and the Jasper Chamber of Commerce – the city of Jasper will have a bright and festive look throughout the 2016 holiday season.
