Menorah lights brighten rough snowstorm
Crowds of west siders braved the winter storm to join the annual Chanukah celebration Dec. 13 at Crocker Park. It was warm and toasty inside the Market Square hall as young and old enjoyed an evening of fun, celebrating the miracle of Chanukah in the Jewish tradition.
The evening ended with the lighting of a giant, nine-foot menorah outside the square with Mayor Dennis Clough kindling the first lamp.
It was an evening to be remembered, and now becoming an annual holiday tradition.
