The traditional Christmas Tree Lighting on the Londonderry Town Common will be on Sunday, December 8. Festivities start at 2:30 p.m. with entertainment and refreshments. Then as it starts to get dark, at approximately 4 p.m., a fire truck will bring Santa and Mrs. Claus to oversee the illumination of decorated trees.
The Londonderry Rotary Club works annually with many youth groups, local non-profit organizations and area businesses to put on this event. Twenty-four trees will be available for decoration by enthusiastic Girl Scout troops, daycare classes, Cub Scouts, church groups and more. Trees will be available for decoration on December 1 and groups often get creative with natural and edible materials to be wildlife-friendly. If you are interested in decorating a tree, there are a few left to claim by contacting Rotarian Bob MacArthur at (603) 965-6149.
The S.T.E.P performers from Londonderry and members of the Londonderry Christian Church choir will entertain with carols, seasonal songs and dance. Hot cider, hot chocolate, coffee and cookies will be served as the community gathers to enjoy the magical glow of lights on the Common. Keep a camera ready because after the trees are lit, good little girls and boys are invited to bring their wish list and sit on Santa's lap.
