IT WASN'T just the summer-like weather that made Saturday's tree lighting in Savage seem a bit like a Fourth of July celebration. This year, the community decided to forgo the traditional red-and-green Yuletide color palette in favor of a more patriotic motif. "The red, white and blue theme is because of Sept. 11th," said Charla Long, one of the organizers of the tree lighting. The 12-foot blue spruce, planted about two years ago on the grounds beside historic Carroll Baldwin Hall, is usually bedecked in colored lights and red bows at Christmastime.

According to Corrinne Arnold, president of the group that maintains the hall - the Carroll Baldwin Hall Memorial Association - no one was sure exactly when the renovations would be finished.

Thirty-five years after the publication of her book on the history of Savage, Vera R. Filby is pleasantly surprised that people are still interested. "When they asked me to reprint it, I thought, `Who would be interested in it?' " Filby said, smiling. "Then again, history is history, and it's still accurate up to 1965. After that, it's someone else's worry." "They" is Carroll Baldwin Memorial Institute, a community group that works to preserve Carroll Baldwin Hall, a meeting place for Savage residents.
