Lighting of the Tree by Rick Bessette


We welcome you with peace and joy
As we come and gather round.
Celebrating with community
A season of sights and sounds.

Growing alongside this highway
Watching families come and go;
Giving beauty to our town green,
Your one mission just to grow.

Snows of winter soon to arrive
Will dress these bows of evergreen,
Sharing the night with moon and stars
To present a magical scene.

Each year we await the moment
For the twinkling of these lights
Warming the hearts of travelers
On cold, dark, wintery nights.
