The community Christmas tree on the courthouse lawn for the 2011 Christmas Holiday season has been donated by Charlie Beier of Andrew Lane in Jasper. The tree serves as the main Christmas tree for the community during the holiday season.
The clear lights on the tree, the red blows and lighted garland on the street light poles were financed by Patoka 2000. In addition to the planters on the Patoka River bridge, a new addition this year are the red and green flags. Contributions were received from individuals in the community in memory of their loved ones.
