Gloucester Township's annual holiday tree-lighting ceremony will take place the evening of Sunday, Dec. 16.
The event, held at Lt. Col. Samuel M. Siler Veterans Memorial Park, is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
It will mark the third straight year Mayor David Mayer and members of Township Council have been joined by community members to light up the tree at the joint entrance to the park and Chews Landing Road municipal complex.
Mayer invited the public to attend the tree-lighting ceremony during Monday night's Council meeting.
For the 2011 tree-lighting ceremony, Blackwood-based Mainstage Center for the Arts' Harmony and Encore choirs performed Christmas favorites.
Dec. 16 marks the close of Hanukkah this year.
