Service group offers Christmas light-stringing help for seniors
An annual tradition continues for King City and Summerfield senior citizens needing help stringing up Christmas lights, as well as help taking them down.
Students from Tigard High School's Service Club are offering their assistance in putting up the decorations beginning Dec. 3. They will remove them on Jan. 7.
The light-stringing event has been a tradition for more than 20 years, according to Jay Leet.
Leet has worked for the Tigard-Tualatin School District for 30 years, spending some of that time as a Tigard High School Key Club advisor. Even in retirement, Leets helps coordinate the annual tradition.
Those wanting some help with their Christmas lights should contact Leet at 503-989-7077 or Fred Holtz, a Tigard High School faculty advisor, at 503-431-5448.
