We are quickly ticking away toward our third annual tree lighting event on December 1. We have an earlier start this year for our festivities. Beginning at 4 pm, the State Street Corridor and its Elves will welcome holiday goers to the Green Acres Plaza and Kroger. There will be craft activities for children and cotton candy (two things that obviously go well together).
The shops in Green Acres Plaza will be open so you can browse and shop for everything from gift for your loved ones to gifts for yourself and even stop and enjoy dinner or a coffee.
St. Thomas Aquinas will provide a youth choir for entertainment and then at 5:45 the Heritage High School Band will arrive. A short program will follow, and then a very special guest (ho ho ho) will arrive to officially light our tree.
There’s still time to participate. Please contact us at 989-791-9865. We are looking for volunteers for before, during and after the event as well as businesses who want to be included in the bags that we are providing to families (filled with coupons, pens, etc).
