The community Christmas tree, which came from Mitchell Elementary School, now has a temporary home at Monument Square in downtown Racine. The tree was cut down on Sunday because the school is doing  some renovations and was donated to Racine Downtown Corp. This was no 15-foot tree you could just plunk on the hood of the car as it had to be transported on an over-sized flatbed. According to Downtown Racine‘s Facebook page: “It will be decorated all day tomorrow (Monday) and lit next Saturday after the Holiday Parade. We will list the names of the volunteers that decorate it soon.” The Holiday Parade is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. Saturday on Main and 6th streets. The Christmas tree lighting ceremony will be held after the parade in Monument Square.
