Spirit of season alive and well here

Published 10:13am Friday, December 7, 2012

Christmas is in the air and thanks to the hard work of city employees, local business owners and many volunteers, the streets of Tryon are ready to spread some holiday cheer.

Our beloved mascot Morris is back home at the corner of N. Trade and Pacolet. Rebuilt from the inside out and covered in gleaming, glossy coats of paint, Morris is all shiny and new and ready to greet visitors as they come in to town.

Not to be out done by local fashionistas, Morris sports a lovely wreath of greens, berries and a bright red ribbon around his neck. Now decked out in his holiday attire and looking absolutely smashing, Morris is ready for his seasonal duties as mascot for the town and this evening’s holiday stroll.

Enjoy the festivities as you walk the streets of Tryon this evening, take in the smell of fresh pine from the beautiful wreaths adorning business fronts, and the sparkling lights setting the stage for another delightful holiday evening in Tryon.

Thank you to the many individuals who came together to make this holiday season a little brighter and happier. The spirit of Christmas brings with it a renewed hope for a better, kinder world and that spirit is alive and well here.
