Cornelius tree illuminated

by: NEWS-TIMES PHOTO: CHASE ALLGOOD - It was bitter cold and windy, but people seemed to have a good time, said City Manager Rob Drake. Cups of hot chocolate, donated by Fred Meyer and served by Cornelius Boosters on site, probably helped.

Between 300 and 400 people turned out Friday evening for the second annual Cornelius holiday tree lighting ceremony, braving frigid temperatures as the 30-foot Douglas fir was illuminated in a green space next to city hall.
