An enthusiastic crowd celebrated the holiday season in Virgil last Thursday, with the lighting of the large pine tree beside the Town Hall. The tree-lighting began as a Virgil Business Association event last year, and has been taken over as a new, annual tradition by the Town. The Ukesters were on hand to entertain, and promised to return next year. Cookies and hot apple cider were provided courtesy of Dan Williams, with Coun. Erwin Wiens leading the event. Lord Mayor Betty Disero was unable to attend, due to the Regional council meeting with an important vote scheduled.
