Sponsor a Tree and Deck out the Common This Weekend

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.
