We look forward to sharing the joy of the season

To the Editor:
The Helderberg Family and Community Organization is honored to bring the fifth annual Hope and Peace Community Festival of Trees to the residents of the Hilltowns and surrounding communities.

Please join us at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2 for the Tree Lighting Ceremony behind the Knox firehouse at 2198 Berne-Altamont Rd. This evening of holiday cheer will feature the Berne-Knox-Westerlo Christmas Tree Choir.

Also enjoy light refreshments and a holiday treat for all. There is also the option to stay in your car and listen via radio transmission. To follow will be the lighting of 37 beautifully decorated trees.

Each tree has been sponsored by an individual, family, business, group, or organization in memory of a loved one, to raise awareness or honor the courage of others, or to celebrate a meaningful theme.

The trees will be lit each evening through Jan. 5 for all to enjoy.

We look forward to sharing the joy of the season with all of you.
