Decorations are up in Eagle Point and Friday, Dec. 5 at 7 p.m., the Brookins family will officially light the town’s Christmas tree in Bob Moore Park. Jim Brookins spent many, many years as an active participant in the holiday festivities as well as being very involved in VFW. He also was Santa’s elf and helper.
Following the tree lighting, Santa will arrive and lead the children to the Ashpole Center where he will hold court. Each child will receive a bag of goodies and take his or her choice of a stuffed animal home.
This event is another project of the Eagle Point Community Association. The town’s decorations are also a Community Association project in cooperation with the City of Eagle Point.
