The STMA Rotary Club and Shop Saint Michael are pleased to announce St. Michael’s 3rd Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration, 6-8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 1 at St. Michael City Center, 11800 Town Center Drive NE, St. Michael.

We strung the lights today!
            This festive event will include performances by STMA High School’s Chamber Choir and Gold Jazz Band, free photos with Santa courtesy of Zahler Photography, holiday stories read by Friends of the Library and local Rotarians, a children’s craft activity sponsored by Family Youth Community Connections (FYCC), and a special holiday craft sale featuring the handiworks of Crow River Senior Center members.  Free sandwiches, chips cookies, bars, and punch and coffee will be served while supplies last. The free event will include a toy and children’s book drive for the Hanover Area Food Shelf.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a new unwrapped toy or children’s book.

The tree will be lit by St. Michael’s very own “Holiday Cheermeister” who will be nominated by the community and selected by Shop Saint Michael and STMA Rotary.  This year’s Cheermeister will be announced soon.

            The Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration is sponsored by STMA Rotary and Shop Saint Michael.
