NORTH KINGSTOWN – If all goes according to plan, the massive pine in Updike Park that has served as the town Christmas tree for many years will make its final appearance in the spotlight this holiday season.
And, in the evergreen equivalent of “All About Eve”, a gorgeous ingénue is waiting in the wings.
“We have been talking about trying to put a better tree in Updike Park,” says public works director Phil Bergeron. The old tree has become “very tall, thinned out” to the point that the entire thing “can’t be lit.”
