Kingston town spirit is at an all-time high

In all the 33 years we have lived in Kingston, never have we seen the “town spirit” as high as it is this year. Wonderful community energy is everywhere you look, with multiple annual parades, volunteers cleaning the streets and highway, seasonal decorations downtown with flowers and bows, a whole new community village center under way, just to name a few great things about Kingston.

The crowning glory was the tree lighting at the Port of Kingston. If you ever want to experience “holiday cheer,” the Kingston Port is the place to come. All year long, dozens of dedicated Kingstonites have created a truly fantastic light show. The display has something for everyone, from waterfalls and fish to flowers and trees.

When looking back over the years, the Port has accomplished it’s mission of supporting safe boating and making the waterfront accessible to the entire region. Comprehensive Plans have been funded and remarkably well  implemented. I think I heard someone say they thought the Port was now visible from the moon.

Thank you to all the creative volunteers and the Port of Kingston for making such a phenomenal effort to bring cheer to Kingston. Happy holiday to you all.

Wendy and Nick Jewett
