The Annual Tree Lighting Event is led by Christmas Tree Committee Chair Helen Wirt-Kennedy and has drawn in crowds of approximately 400 people each year! Over the last eight years, the hours of this celebration has grown into an all day event for families and children of all ages. Special thanks this year to Jamie Atkins for providing transportation to Santa and Mrs. Claus to Au Sable Forks, NY.
Town of Jay Supervisor, Randall Douglas (who is M.C. of this event) said, “For me, this is one event I don’t want to miss. The annual tree lighting is more than just a celebration, it reminds us that we must all work together to do great things! To our parishes, to our businesses, and to residents young and old, may the spirit of Christmas be with you all year long.”
