East Liverpool firefighter Antony Cumo (left) hands some Christmas tree lights to Harry Aldridge of Aldridge Construction on Sunday. The men were among several dozen volunteers who helped prepare the downtown area for “Christmas on the Diamond,” a new holiday festival scheduled to start at 3 p.m. Saturday. It will be followed by the Christmas parade at 6 p.m. and the Christmas tree lighting. Aldridge donated the use of his bucket truck for the decorating and cleaning day. Organizers are the East Liverpool Community Partnership for Revitalization (Urban Core Committee), the Beacon Association and Heritage Thermal Services. (Photo by Stephen Huba)
