Hundreds Attended the 2018 Christmas Tree Lighting in Draper Memorial Park
Citizens for Milford hosted the FOURTH ANNUAL MILFORD CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING on Friday, November 30, 2018. Highlights of this year’s event included the holiday carol sing-along led by members of the Greater Milford Community Chorus, as well as a special visit from Santa Claus.
We extend our sincerest appreciation to every individual, group, and business who helped make the 2018 Milford Christmas Tree and the Lighting Ceremony possible. Thank you Parks Department, as well as Milford resident and owner of Busy Bee Landscaping Mr. David Sanches who donated and planted a beautiful new tree that we hope will serve as a symbol of peace and goodwill to Milford citizens for generations to come. We also express heartfelt thanks to Milford Commandery No. 11 stationed at Montgomery Lodge for funding the holiday lighting and decorations, the Greater Milford Community Chorus for leading us all in holiday carols, Red Heat Tavern of Milford for providing hot cocoa and soup, and Milford Public Schools Food Service for donating fresh-baked cookies. Your generosity and collaboration enabled us to provide the best possible community event this year.
The Milford Christmas Tree will be lit each night throughout the holiday season. If you missed the ceremony last night, be sure to stop by Draper Park one evening to take in its glow. It’s a beautiful spot for family photos. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!
