13TH ANNUAL CHRISTMAS TREE
LIGHTING (WITH NO CAROL SING) - will be held on Sunday, December 13, 2020 @ 5:00 PM. Despite COVID-19’s impact on the year 2020, we still plan on holding our annual outdoor tree lighting portion of this cherished annual event to kick-off the 2020 Christmas Season. Unfortunately, this year we will not be holding the indoor Carol Singing portion of our annual event. This is due to NJ State Laws and Rules on indoor gatherings and crowd size limitations. With the annual size of the Carol Sing attendance surpassing 150+ people inside, it would not be safe enough to hold the indoor portion this year. We want to follow and maintain the appropriate social distancing guidelines in order to maintain the health and safety of all in attendance. But we promise to add the Carol Sing portion back in next year in 2021. Unlike the past, this year’s evening will begin and conclude exclusively outdoors with the lighting of our Christmas tree and Nativity! Our goal is to still offer families and friends an opportunity to gather together outside to share some of the simple joys of the Christmas Season, twinkling lights and we promise lots of tasty goodies to go! This evening promises to be fun for people of all ages, so everyone is invited to attend. Thank you and we hope to see you there!
