Mayor Harding said this about Christmas in the Park, “a traditional centerpiece for the city of Yelm and those who have called this place home for many, many years.”
As I can attest, this IS true, for I was here for the very first Christmas in the Park celebration in 1989, after moving to Yelm in September 1988.
