From the Jan. 12, 1956 News Record:

The official closing of the Yule season, which was to have been performed with a torchlight ceremony and the burning of Christmas trees on high school hill by the local Boy Scout troop, ended in disappointment Saturday night, it was announced by Scouting officials. The ceremony had been slated at 8 p.m. but someone fired the trees at 6 p.m. and the Scouts’ program had to be canceled. The irony of the situation was not so much that the trees had been burned Friday night, since the city had collected them from along main street. But the ones which were burned Saturday night had been collected through the Scouts’ efforts all day Saturday. Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts and Brownie Scouts had also been invited, so there were approximately 200 young people quite disappointed, officials pointed out.
