Tradition Lights Up Evergreen On Christmas Eve

Posted: Updated:
EVERGREEN -

There is still time to take part in an Evergreen tradition that is about two decades old.

You can buy, and decorate, five-dollar luminaries at the Evergreen Fire Department until 2:00 p.m. on December 24.

The money goes into a scholarship fund for Evergreen and Helena Flats students at Flathead Valley Community College.

This year, they are using glow sticks so weather will not be a problem, and you can see the lights on the two mile stretch between Highway 2 East and Whitefish Stage Road on Rose Crossing.

"I think it's just a really neat tradition. It gives time to reflect on the year in itself and then the year upcoming," said Craig Williams, the Evergreen Fire Chief.

Last year, the fire department raised more than $600 from this fundraiser.
