City prepares for night of holiday cheer
'Tis the season when parents bundle up their little ones, the city affixes an evergreen in the middle of Centennial Plaza and the Sandy High choir singers warm up their vocal chords for a night of carols, cocoa, cookies and community.
From 6-8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, in the plaza at 39295 Pioneer Blvd., the city and volunteer elves from around the community will come together to host the annual tree lighting ceremony. The tree will be lit by the mayor at 7 p.m. and Oregon Trail School Board of Directors Chairman D.J. Anderson will emcee the event.
"The annual tree lighting is an event that our family looks forward to every year," said Mayor Stan Pulliam. "With this being the first as Mayor that I get to light the tree, the girls, MacKensey and I are incredibly excited."
During the event, the Sandy Historical Museum, 39345 Pioneer Blvd., will host an open house with refreshments, a kid's crafts table and live music by the Hammered Dulcimers.
"The holidays are all about family and community," Pulliam said. "No local event speaks to this and highlights Sandy as the wonderful community we are (more) than our annual tree lighting."
