Downtown Christmas tree comes down early
By Suzanne Colonna -- MPG Newspapers

PLYMOUTH (Dec. 20) - It was beginning to look a lot like Christmas, until high winds and rain Wednesday night claimed the town's Christmas tree for the second time this year.

"It snapped right at the base," parks, forestry, recreation and cemetery superintendent Ted Bubbins said Friday.
Bubbins said the tree department got a call Wednesday night around 8:30 p.m. that the tree was on the ground along North Street.

Sabotage Spruce Sienna?
