Lexington Families Pleased the City is Using Their Trees

tree lights 300LEXINGTON, KY (11/15/13) - Betty and Louis Fitzpatrick, Cyndi Dotson and her husband and Michael Walsh all have large Blue Spruce trees that have outgrown their yards in Lexington.

The trees were planted years ago and have served the families well. They were decorated at Christmas until they grew too tall to reach by ladder.

The families have donated their trees to the city to grace three downtown locations, where they will be decorated for the upcoming holidays.

The Fitzpatricks' tree, a 40-foot Blue Spruce, will be placed in Triangle Park. It is scheduled to be removed from their yard at 807 Honeysuckle Road at 9 a.m. Monday, November 18.

The Dotsons' tree, a 25-foot Blue Spruce, will be placed in front of the Kentucky Utilities building on Quality Street. It is scheduled to be removed from 4017 Whitewater Drive at 1 p.m. Monday, November 18.

Walsh's tree, a 30-foot Blue Spruce, will light up the Isaac Murphy Park and is scheduled to be removed from 2153 Palomar Trace Drive at 9 a.m. Tuesday, November 19.

"I love that our tree's going to be in Triangle Park," Betty Fiztpatrick said. "I like the thought of it being used for the community."

The three trees will be part of the annual official tree-lighting ceremony in downtown Lexington on Friday, November 29. Santa and Mayor Jim Gray are expected to flip the switch at 6:30 p.m. to light up downtown for Christmas.

Walsh said he is particularly pleased that his tree will stand in Isaac Murphy Park. "Our oldest daughter did a report for school on Isaac Murphy last year," he said, "so it sort of tied in.

"I'm also pleased that it can be shared by others and won't just go to waste."

Cyndi Dotson said she always thought their tree would "make a great tree for the city."
