SDC Tree Lighting
Thursday December 1st 2011 -
The Sonoma Developmental Center in Eldridge will hold its annual Tree Lighting
Ceremony on Dec. 1 outside the facility’s gymnasium.
The Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony will occur between the hours of 3:30pm and 5pm.
The large tree on the lawn outside the gymnasium will be adorned with lights that will be lit at 5pm. The Peace On Earth Sign that has been a tradition at the center for many years will also be lit and can be seen from Arnold Drive at the four way stop sign.
There will also be approximately 20 smaller trees lining the sidewalk on Harney Circle, which are being decorated by various programs and departments throughout the facility.
This year all those in attendance will be voting on their favorite Christmas tree.
The atmosphere will indeed be festive, as Christmas carolers will be strolling around while singing holiday favorites and snowflakes will be falling from the sky, during the event. Warm refreshments will also be served.
