Mayor Frank Huttle Announces Englewood Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony – Tonight
In keeping with the other holiday events that have marked the season here in Englewood, Mayor Frank Huttle III is pleased to announce a lighting of the Englewood City Christmas Tree. The ceremony will take place outside City Hall at 5:00pm on Wednesday, December 15.
“I’m so pleased to be able to have the honor of lighting the Englewood City Christmas Tree and to enjoy the company of my fellow Englewood residents during this very special time of year,” the Mayor stated. “Having had the privilege of lighting the Englewood City Menorah on the first night of Chanukah, I’m looking forward to this next event as we get into the full swing of the holiday season.”
The Englewood City Christmas Tree is a newly planted Blue Spruce positioned right outside City Hall. The tree is a gift from the Huttle family and was planted this year to replace a dying tree in the same location. It will remain there and will serve Englewood as a holiday marker for many years to come.
“I’m hoping that this tree lighting will be the beginning of a great tradition to coincide with the holiday season. I’d like this symbol along with the Menorah which will stand adjacent to not only symbolize the joy and hope we all have during this time of year, but also to show the unity, diversity and greatness that is Englewood.”
The ceremony will begin promptly at 5:00pm outside of City Hall and will run for approximately 45 minutes.
