Time to Roll! Hello from the desk of the Ashland Alliance. With the Holiday season on us, we aren’t spending too much time at our desks. This week we held the Kick off for the Winter Wonderland of Lights at Central Park. We were joined with about 300-400 people on a chilly night for the lighting of the 758,000 LED lights! It is hard to express how proud of a feeling it is to see cars backed up slowly driving around Central Park looking at the work and dedication of so many for the benefit of all. It is like the scene from the movie Field of Dreams where, in the end, they show all the cars coming to see the baseball field, “Build it, and they will come.” Last night was the DESCO Federal Credit Union Business After Hours at the Paramount Art Center’s Festival of Trees and Trains. This event is a highlight of the holiday season. Over 300 people attended and felt the charm of the Paramount with the best backdrop for the holidays that there is in the Tri-State. The Alliance is proud to be a part of this event and the beautiful front door this has become for the community. Just today, I watched busloads of children from our schools lining up to see what the Paramount and the business community has put together.
