Mayor Knapik thanks Tree Lighting participants

Date: 12/14/2010

Many thanks to all of you who made the 2010 Annual Holiday Tree Lighting and Lantern-Light Parade such a success!

The Westfield High School Concert Choir under the direction of Korey Bruno and Kathryn Rapacki provided wonderful holiday music for all to enjoy!

Westfield on Weekends Bob Plasse, and the Westfield Business Improvement District Lisa McMahon for all of their hard work in pulling off this great event. The hours they put in to make sure that everyone got in the holiday spirit are much appreciated!

To Chris Lindquist and everyone at the Westfield Athenaeum for the chairs for Santa and Mrs. Claus, as well as their hospitality after the event with cider and cookies.

To the Mount Moriah Masonic Lodge for the delicious hot chocolate.

To Westfield Gas and Electric for their assistance assembling the tree and ensuring that the lights went on with a push of the button, to Creative Illuminations for again lighting the downtown buildings and decorating the City Hall building; to Evans Farms for providing the beautiful carriage for Santa; to the Westfield Police Department for their assistance with traffic and the escort for Santa's Carriage.

Mayor Daniel Knapik
