Wilmington's Tree Lighting Ceremony drew a large crowd on Saturday night
This year's Tree Lighting Ceremony was a fun, festive place to be for any age. Complimentary hot chocolate was handed out, and Town Common visitors were able to see ice sculptures as they were being sculpted. The line for hay rides remained long for the whole night. Before Santa came, the United Methodist Church graced the crowd with some caroling. Christmas music was in the air all evening. The evening cumulated with the arrival of Santa. Children were able to take photos with him, and shortly after his arrival the lighting took place. The evening was made possible by the Fourth of July Headquarters. The Wilmington firefighters were also thanked and present.

Our launch week brought you loads of news on Veterans Day and sports, charitable and entertaining events and more.
This was our launch week and we went "live" on one of the most treasured (and busy) holidays in Wilmington–Veterans Day. We wanted to give you great, visual, coverage of the actual Veterans Day ceremony and exhibit down on the town common, and showcase the Wilmington High School band that was bigger and better than ever. But we also wanted to highlight veterans in our community, like the many veterans who continue their public service after (or during) their military service as firefighters. In addition, we also spotlighted the great work the Local Heroes, Inc. organization has done, and continues to do, for the troops by visiting them for their six-year anniversary meeting, where over 100 boxes were packaged up with …
