‘Little North Pole’ Lights Holiday Season

‘Little North Pole’ Lights Holiday Season


The Mure Home in Neponsit becomes the "Little North Pole" at this time each year. The lighting ceremony was held on Sunday evening after a postponement due to the blizzard the day before. The ceremony, to raise funds for Juvenile Diabetes, was attended by hundreds of local residents on a very cold night.
