"We are certainly hoping and keeping our fingers crossed that these very frigid nights doesn't spoil the 'show'," Henderson says.

"Operation Dogwood," launched in the mid 1960's resulted in hundreds of the trees planted along roads, in the historic town park square, around the town three cemeteries and in yards.
