[November 12, 2011]  Friday night a nice turnout of folks visited the courthouse lawn on Lincoln's downtown square to welcome in the holiday season with the lighting of the Christmas tree and the arrival of Santa Claus. 

While they waited for Santa, several joined in the singing of Christmas carols, led by Roger Matson, who is the Main Street Lincoln board president and manager of National Rent to Own.

When Santa arrived, he was asked to do the honors and flip the switch that would light the tree and the lovely lights adorning his new little cottage where he will spend time this holiday season visiting with all the children in the community. 

After the lighting, there were more carols to be sung. Then several of those who came stayed on the square to do a little shopping or just walk about town, viewing the beautifully decorated store windows. 

Matson also issued a list of thank-yous to all who helped prepare for the evening, and Mayor Keith Snyder spoke briefly, thanking all who came out and encouraging them to support the downtown businesses this holiday season.
