PERU — More than Rudolph's nose lit the way for Santa here during the recent Peru Christmas Tree Lighting.  

Before the festivities, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus admired the bright lights and snowman that decorated the Peru Volunteer Fire Department truck that carried the couple to the 32nd-annual Peru Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at the town gazebo.

Along with the visit by the royal couple of Christmas, the recent celebration included carols followed by crafts and snacks at the Peru Fellowship Center.

Former Town Clerk Kathy Flynn did the honor of lighting the tree.
