The Christmas season has arrived in Sumpter!
Volunteers gathered at the Stage Stop Gas Station to decorate the Sumpter Christmas Tree today and there was a certain holiday cheer in everyone’s smile as each decoration was added to the tree. There was no snow on the ground, although there was a hint of snow in the air as kids of all ages helped decorate the Sumpter Christmas tree. It was a special treat to see kids dancing around the tree this year! See some of the photos below……
