Trees decorated for Holiday on the Lake


CARMEL – A small army of volunteers was up early Sunday and under clear blue skies decorated eighty holiday trees that gave the Putnam County seat a holiday aura.
Next Saturday thanks in part to the Hamlet of Carmel Civic Association, Carmel’s 23rd annual Parade of Lights featuring dozens of floats will proceed along the hamlet’s main thoroughfare.
Churches throughout the hamlet will also be hosting their annual bazaars throughout the day.
