Lighting ceremony will be held Dec. 6
The GRF Recreation Department will host the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at Veterans Plaza.
Santa and his elves (courtesy of the LW Theater Club) will be there to collect toys for children in need and to pose for photos, so bring the family for pictures with Old St. Nick.
The Korean American Chorale will entertain with a selection of Christmas carols. Audience participation will be encouraged.
This year, the toy drive is sponsored by the Brown Descents Car Club, an Orange County charitable organization that supports disadvantaged local youth by providing scholarships and gifts at Christmas.
Bring unwrapped donations to the event. Refreshments will be provided by OptumCare. All are encouraged to stop by the table and say hello.
Come and kick off the holidays at Veterans Plaza, see the brand-new tree, and bring a friend, grandchild or two, and lots of neighbors.
