Members of the Londonderry Rotary Club are hoping that local organizations will join them in decking out Town Common this holiday season by sponsoring a tree. Set-up for the December tree-lighting event will begin on Sunday, Nov. 25. Reed Clark said approximately 23 Christmas trees will be featured in this year’s holiday display.
Tree set-up and decorating will take place between 8 a.m. and noon that day, with decorating to continue over the course of the following week. The tree-lighting ceremony is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 2, with the festivities to begin at 3:30 p.m.
Hot cider, coffee, cocoa and refreshments will be served, with holiday music and caroling provided by local Girl Scouts and the Londonderry Christian Church band. There is a strong possibility that Mr. and Mrs. Claus will be arriving and will be part of the ceremony. A collection of non-perishable food items for the local food pantries will round out the day’s festivities.
Any area youth group, church or nonprofit that is interested in decorating a tree this year should contact Caron Renik at 765-7735.
