The 3rd Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Event was a big success, thanks to a committee of volunteers from the Elko New Market Chamber of Commerce. Santa and Mrs. Claus greeted a long line of kids waiting to make their holiday-gift wishes known. Friends, families and neighbors enjoyed the warmth of the fires, popcorn and hot chocolate while festive music played and carolers sang leading up to the lighting of the tree by Mayor Bob Crawford and his wife Beth. Following the tree lighting, carolers sang the age-old ode to the tree, “O Christmas Tree!
Thanks to the City of Elko New Market Public Works Department for stringing the lights on the tree.
