FREEPORT LIGHTS IT’S CHRISTMAS TREE

Dec 10th, 2008 | 0

By BEN GRAFTON

Friday night in front of City Hall, Freeport’s Town Planters Association sponsored the city’s annual Christmas tree lighting event. The weather was cold, but it didn’t bother a cheerful, good-sized crowd, full of Christmas spirit, that turned out for the affair.
To open the event, the national flag was raised by local Boy Scouts and this was followed with the national anthem, sung by Latilda Henninger, and a Christmas blessing was offered by John Fogarty of the Freeport WOW Church. The crowd enjoyed Christmas carols by the Pre-K singers and then joined in for caroling led by members of the First Baptist Church Choir.
The highlight of the evening came when the lights on the Christmas tree were turned on.
