We dedicate our Hometown Holiday & Tree Lighting festivities each year to Harold (Snipe) Koch who worked for the Village of Redgranite for over 20 years and gave freely of his time and talents. When Redgranite had no Christmas Lights to illuminate the downtown, he designed and crafted the Christmas Lights that adorn our main street and park today. May Snipe’s example of love and pride in Redgranite dwell in our hearts and move all of us to do the same for our community.
The Redgranite Advance-ment Association is proud to organize this event that fills our historic village with such joy.
This year, “The Magic of The Season Starts In Redgranite” on Dec. 14. Bring the Family, Pick out your tree, start new traditions, create holiday memories and enjoy the merriment only a small town can bring.
