Windham Tree Lighting

58

 Windham - Windham’s Tree Lighting Festivities will be held Saturday December 8, 2012 beginning at 5 pm.  The evening will have a variety of activities for all ages to usher in the Christmas Season. Come dressed for the elements, because one would not want to miss the hay wagon ride through the decorated village park and township green. The hay ride will be a $1 per person with the proceeds going to the park restoration. Join in a Christmas Carol sing-a-long as they light up the gazebo and the township green. Following the hay ride, folks will be able to warm up in the town hall with hot cocoa and cookies and complete a craft with their child.   Following the lighting of the gazebo, Santa is expected to arrive and will be available in the town hall for all the boys and girls to tell him their holiday desires.

The evening will conclude with a gift basket raffle and a 50/50 raffle. All proceeds from this evening’s event will go toward restoring Windham Village Park.

The tree lighting and festivities are sponsored by the Windham Church Community Fellowship, the Windham Village Parks and Recreation Committee and the Windham Park Restoration Committee. The groups would like to thank the township trustees for the use of the town hall and the gazebo.
