The Indian Lake Area Historical Society spent an evening lighting up the lake. 

The organization hosted their annual Indian Lake Christmas Tree Lighting at the Sandy Beach Bridge in Russells Point, shining a beacon of holiday cheer for the community.

“Nice bright lights, the Christmas tree looks beautiful,” said Mary Drexler, who has a summer home on the lake. “When we come into town we look at the bridge and it just looks really nice because of the reflection on the water.”

This is the third year the historical society has held a formal tree lighting celebration and thanks to donations it will be the brightest one yet.

“We recently rewired the bridge with all new LED lights this year so now the lights are pointed down towards the water so they reflect more off the water,” said Julie Schrader, a trustee with the Indian Lake Historical Society. "Also, it’s brighter and conserves more energy and we’re about that here at Indian Lake.” 

The tree lighting gives those who stay at the lake year-round a chance to socialize with each other and enjoy the beauty of the lake in the colder months.

“Well, this is such a small community and during the summer there’s so many people here because it’s a tourist area and in the winter everybody kind of leaves the lake,” said Patti Strete, who lives in Russells Point year-round. “It’s kind of nice to get everybody together in one spot and celebrate that there’s some fun things to do at the lake in the winter, too.”

The Christmas tree will be on display until the beginning of spring, but the rest of the bridge will stay lit year round.
