MCLB Albany Dougherty County, GA (WALB) – Military families celebrated the holidays Friday night at the Marine Corps Logistics Base.

The lighting of the Christmas tree near some of the base housing is an annual tradition at MCLB.

Marine families and base employees were invited for cookies, hot chocolate and to see Santa Claus.

Sergeant Ken Applegate and his family always enjoy the outing.

"This is actually my third Christmas season that I'm spending out here it ties everyone together for the evening, it's always cold but they warm it up with the good cheer food and festivities, it's a great time," said Sgt. Ken Applegate, U.S. Marine Corps.

After the tree lighting, there was a party for youngsters with arts and crafts.
