NEW POTSDAM HOLIDAY TREE DEDICATED SUNDAY--The new tree behind the Potsdam Public Museum was planted about 5 years ago.

In the meantime, a tree adjacent to the Potsdam Fire Department was lit. Yesterday's ceremonies consisted of a blessing by Presbyterian Pastor Dr. D. Richard Will, and the annual holiday message by Mayor Reinhold 'Ron' Tischler. Customary entertainment from Potsdam Central School and refreshments in the museum followed.
