Nat Cary hangs a wreath at the corner of Essex St. and Eastern Ave.

Members of the East Lynn Community Association braved cold rain and numb hands Saturday afternoon to hang Christmas wreaths at 4 intersections in the city. Nat and Sally Cary along with Mary Ellen Palermo, ELCA secretary Tom Sheehan and ELCA president Mary Trahan hung the circular arrangements of evergreen sprigs on traffic and telephone poles at Essex and Eastern, Chatham and Essex, Chestnut and Lewis and Lewis and Eastern intersections. Trahan, who donated the wreaths, vows to decorate 8 intersections next year.

The ELCA invites you to help us hang wreaths, beautify parks, plant perennials, go out to eat and join us in many other activities in 2010. Just email east.lynn.assn@comcast.net to be included in updates or come to our next meeting on Jan. 6, 2010, 7:00 PM at the Temple Ahabat Shalom on 151 Ocean St. A non-profit resource fair is planned for the evening. Organizations signed up so far include the Lynn Shelter Association, Girl’s Inc., Children’s Law Center and Friends of Lynn and Nahant Beach.
