The tree has doubled in size since Carol Parkhurst began a Wilton tradition in 1999. Carol had been in the Hospital but she was there December 2 in a wheelchair and she lit the tree. This year Steve Porto, Rec Director, had stands set up for the tree-lighting and they were packed with families for the event - and Santa arriving on the Hook 'n Ladder of Maple Ave Fire Company
