A successful 'Lane'

Fresno Bee
January 9, 2006

As everyone puts the holidays behind them, a small team of electricians will spend the next two months removing the wiring and lights from the trees along Van Ness Boulevard in Fresno. The 83rd Annual Christmas Tree Lane tradition has come and gone, and what a wonderful success it was.

Special thanks to the families of historic Old Fig Garden, the merchants of Fig Garden Village and volunteers from the Fresno State women's softball team, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 100, the Assistance League of Fresno and countless others for making our walk nights possible.

The nonprofit project -- which lasted 25 days and attracted more than 100,000 visitors in December -- succeeded without incident. The efforts of Fresno City Council Member Henry T. Perea, the Fresno County Sheriff's Department and the California Highway Patrol did not go unnoticed.

Notes of appreciation continue to arrive at oldfig.org from families living in all parts of California who came home to enjoy the family tradition. We thank everyone for the success of the 83rd year. We look forward to the 84th year of Christmas Tree Lane in 2006.

Lauri Leone Stine,
Christmas Tree Lane Committee co-chair
Fresno
