Hoping that garlands will return
To the editor:
As I was growing up near St. George the highlight of Christmas was going to New Ulm to see the beautiful downtown decorations, the hanging garland and lights.
As I grew older I had the privilege of representing New Ulm as Miss New Ulm. Going to many parades and events, people would see I was from New Ulm. Many would comment on how beautiful New Ulm is, especially at Christmas in the downtown are, which broiught a lot of people to New Ulm to see.
After we married and had our family, we also brought our family to New Ulm to see the hanging garland and lights. To this day they will never forget that fun night.
Yesterday seeing the garland and lights come down I was hoping that it would NOT be the last time I would see the hanging garland and lights.
