Morgan Bardonstone, 18, of Unity, right, and Ambrose Donth, 19, of Claremont, pass by a large menorah on display as part of the holiday decorations in Broad Street Park in Claremont, N.H., Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2018. City resident Sam Killay, an atheist, has registered a complaint with the city council against the display of the menorah and a creche in the park. He said that having the symbols on city property violates the establishment clause of the first amendment and that if they are not taken down he will apply to put up anti-religious symbols alongside them.
