Scrooge hits Montello

Sometime after 7pm on Thanksgiving night and before 9 am on Friday a SCROOGE snatched one of the white Christmas trees from in front of the shop. It's not bad enough that the city didi'nt get the decorations up in town yet, or that the banners announcing this weekends event weren't put up. NOW, the tree was STOLEN ! Someone must have really needed a tree bad and the funny part is, if they had asked I would have given them one of the many we have in the shop. So....Merry Christmas anyways and I hope the rest of the season goes better than this first holiday weekend!
