The cold weather we’re experiencing this week just might be getting you in the mood for the holidays! This busy season is just about upon us. Augusta University provides a great way to kick off the season with the annual “Lighting of the Tree.”
This year, the free event takes place on Tuesday, December 4, starting at 6 p.m. on Augusta University’s Summerville Campus.
Augusta University and the Summerville Neighborhood Association invite all faculty, staff, students, community members, families and friends to attend this annual event, which features:
- Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus
- Holiday crafts
- Face painting
- Letters to Santa and photos with Santa
- Cookie decorating
- Trolley rides through campus
- Food truck
- And a whole lot of Christmas cheer!
Guests are invited to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the Open Paws Student Food Pantry.
I have the privilege of emceeing this event again this year, so I look forward to seeing you there!
