It’s the time of year when we begin to think about preparing the Thanksgiving meal, shopping for Christmas gifts, and finding the perfect New Year’s get-together. As we spend our days in a rush, it’s nice to think of the things that make the holidays special. Towns and communities throughout Douglas County are hosting events that celebrate the nostalgia and traditions of this time of the year. Here’s what’s going on in Lone Tree.
