MOREAUVILLE, La. (Dec. 24, 2003) — For the second year, S&R Tire and Lube L.L.C. has gotten into the Christmas spirit with a big pile of tires.
The Moreauville-based dealership built a 13-foot Christmas tree out of tires in front of the shop, and another 8-foot tree will appear on a float in the town's Christmas parade. A small tire wrapped in red ribbon with poinsettias and a bell served as a wreath.
Owners Ruddie and Stephen Rico said the large tree and its lights can be seen for almost a mile. Last year S&R Tire's tree took second place in the parade, and the owners hope they'll place again this year.
