On Dec. 1, the Caliente Beautification Committee held the annual Tree Lighting at the Depot.
With the community room filled to the max, kids waited with their parents for the arrival of Santa. As they waited, they were entertained by a dance team and songs. Kids and adults lined up to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas. Cookies and hot chocolate were available.
As people departed the event, they walked out into the first snow of the season.
