Tree Lighting on December 5th


The Annual Silverton Tree Lighting presented by the Silverton Chamber of Commerce is set for the First Friday in December.  As part of the festivities, music by Nick Ignelzi and featuring the Silverton High School Choir will start at 6 pm.  Mt. Angel Publishing will be on hand again to hand out hot chocolate (donations accepted for SACA) along with the Silverton Kiwanis Club staffing their "Letters to Santa" station.   Santa with help from the Silverton Fire Department will light the tree at 7 pm.  

Santa will be available afterwards at Silverton Methodist Church across the street for photos and to listen to Christmas wishes.  

This year the chamber has purchsed new LED lights for the tree.  One comment we've heard over the years has been "More Lights" said Chamber Director Stacy Palmer, "Moving to LED's gives us the chance to keep adding lights for years to come".  

Also new this year is the opportuntiy to help sponsor the tree by purchasing a gift tag - that will be hung on the tree.  Each tag will help us to pay for the purchase of energy efficient LED lights to decorate the tree. Your tag will be used as an ornament for the tree.  What a great gift for that person who has everything or a great way to advertise your business.   Click the Tree Sponsorship Form on the left.
