– Editor’s Note:
Former Mayor Ron 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.”

This IS true as I can attest, for I was here for the very first Christmas in the Park celebration in 1989 after moving to Yelm in September 1988.
