On Friday, November 30, residents of St. George gathered for the first “Light up the Knight” celebration at the Town Office, a community event planned by the St. George Days Committee (Tara Elwell, Beth Smith and Dawn Gauthier). The evening began in Port Clyde with Santa’s arrival, followed by his trip up the peninsula to Tenants Harbor on a blinking and honking St. George Fire Engine. At the Town Office those who brought a food item or an unwrapped new toy for the Community Cupboard were entered into a raffle for the chance to throw the switch to light up the town’s Christmas tree, along with St. George and his adversarial dragon. Santa’s arrival in St. George was sponsored by the St. George Business Alliance. The Girl Scouts provided refreshments and the St. George School supplied carolers.
