— Veterans Park is a lot brighter this holiday season, thanks to the work of some volunteers willing to climb trees the Saturday morning after Thanksgiving. Sixteen trees are now aglow with white lights.

The project was initiated by the Highlands Economic and Tourism Corporation (HEAT), which was joined by members of the VFW, Our Lady Queen of Peace Knights of Columbus, the West Milford Chamber of Commerce and several residents. In all, 25 volunteers showed up to help. They brought ladders and extension poles to reach up into the tree branches; some even climbed the trees themselves. In the end, the trees were decorated in half a day.

The effort is to help make the downtown area look more inviting for shoppers this holiday season.

The result is quite a very pretty display.
