For the past 15 years, Evelyn Hayes with Century21 Professional Realty has been lighting up the Cotee River. Every Christmas Eve, Hayes has lined the sea wall on Grand Boulevard with luminarias. This year, due to a knee injury, she was not sure if she would be able to do the luminarias. Neighbor Wendy Walter wanted to keep the tradition going in honor of her late husband, John Keats, who loved the luminarias. So Hayes and Walter with helpers Louise Glass, John Glass, Kastin Lockard, Karter Lockard, Blake Craig, Candy Smith and Roy Holbrook, kept the tradition alive and the luminarias shone brightly along the seawall until sunrise on Christmas Day.
