Great weather and turnout make Tree Lighting memorable for all
At 6:15 pm on Friday November 21st dozens of children helped Mayor Andrea Samuels and State Representative Doc Renuart light up our community Christmas tree. The eyes of the children twinkled as much as the lights on the tree as we kicked off the holiday season in true beach style.
"We deeply appreciate the hundreds who turned out for the event", said Civic Association President Bill Jones. "We like the new earlier date that now puts our beach tree lighting in sync with the City of St Augustine Nights of Lights"
A special thank you to our event coordinator Nico Recore, Public Works Director Joe Howell and his staff who always do a marvelous job with the lights and tree, City Manager Max Royle and St Johns County Parks & Recreation for all of their help.
