Lights shine bright in Spring Valley

A crowd braved the cold and wind to take part in the Love Lights a Tree ceremony Sunday evening in Spring Valley. The crowd watched Carol Himle and Deb Larson light the tree, sang Christmas carols and listened to the roll call of donor names. In the other photo, Himle, left, and Larson keep warm after plugging in the cord to light the tree. In the third photo, Jenna Fischer with two of her children, Jackson and Hayden, and Paisley Baker with one of her children, Mamie, bundle up in front of a portable heater. The wind was too strong to light the luminarias. The funds raised for the event, organized by Spring Valley Kiwanis, help local families with medical expenses to treat cancer.
