D Dennison Emcees Wellington Christmas Parade of Lights: An Annual Tradition you Won’t Want to Miss!

Traditions are like socks, we all have them in different forms, some are colorful while others are holy, but they all keep us happy and warm.

I’m pretty sure that I have been Emceeing the Wellington Christmas Parade of Lights (Coming up this Saturday December 1 at 5pm) now for 10+ years, missing only one that I can remember. Wellington will always hold a special spot in my heart. I spent the better part of the kids’ lives there, served on the Centennial Committee, Chaired the Boys and Girls Club, shopped at the long gone Susie’s market, got my pizza’s ordered just the way I like them at the Pizza Palace (vegetarian with pepperoni :P), had prime rib at the T-bar and devoured a David’s burrito at Camacho’s (Ashley’s all time favorite). I have also marched parades and applauded the fire department in their firefighter ‘wars’ for the Fourth of July. Yep, Wellington is close to my heart.


  • Town of Wellington Community wide Food Drive 8-noon in the Town Hall parking lot. (please bring non-perishable food items)
  • Eyestone’s Holiday Craft Fair 9-3pm This is two rooms of vendors and crafters. (4000 Wilson Avenue-Eyestone Elementary School)
  • Christmas Parade of Lights begins at 5pm
  • Wellington Fire Protection District Annual Chili Supper at Wellington Community Church from 4-9pm. (all you can eat chili, door prizes, entertainment and silent auction. $4 for adults, $2.50 for kids with children 3 and under FREE)

I have some memories from this day of family fun that I wouldn’t trade for all the gold in the world (and yes I know gold is really valuable right now :P). I can’t wait for you to experience this community event.
