NRH Christmas Tree

NRH Christmas Tree Lighting

Thursday, Dec. 2

Join us to kick off the Christmas season with the NRH Christmas Tree Lighting on Thursday, December 2 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. in Stormy Plaza Park.  While this event will have a different format from the Night of Holiday Magic event in year’s past, it will still be filled with the lights and sounds of the holiday season. The event will include a traditional tree lighting, carolers and take-home holiday craft bags distributed by the NRH Library. For a festive warm treat, the Friends of the NRH Library will be selling hot chocolate, and of course, SANTA will be joining us too!
