Public Works employees have been busy setting up a brand-new artificial Christmas tree on a traffic island across from the Aransas Pass City Hall. Destination Aransas Pass, according to the Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Center’s CEO Rosemary Vega, received a grant to fund the 26-foot wonder. It’s bigger than the last one, the Progress was told, the tree’s multi-colored lights tested Friday, November 3rd. “We are looking forward to lighting the tree in the days after Thanksgiving and will announce a date and time soon,” Vega shared with the newspaper via email. “Be on the lookout as we continue to add holiday decorations to the island in front of City Hall in the next few weeks,” Vega wrote. It’s pleasant to see the community getting into the holiday spirit early, perhaps taking the opportunity to appreciate everyone’s individual blessings in these times of global turmoil.
