Celebrate the Holidays in Downingtown

on Saturday, December 9, 2017

TREE LIGHTING CEREMONY
The sights and sounds of the Christmas Holidays will begin this year on Saturday, November 25 at 6:00 p.m. at our Tree Lighting Ceremony.  We have purchased a brand new 17’ artificial lighted Giant Everest Christmas Tree with a 3’ lighted star on top.  The tree will sit next to the Log House and will provide our community a beautiful sight for years to come!!  The celebration will include music, hot chocolate and cookies, and of course, Santa himself will arrive by firetruck.  Come join us in the field by the Log House for a wonderful event! 
We are still fundraising for the tree and the decorations that were purchased.  See below if you would like to make a donation.
