Join family and friends at 5:00pm on Sunday, December 5th, for the annual Lighting of the Boca Grande Community Christmas Tree. Sponsored by the Boca Grande Woman’s Club, the event is held across the street from Hudson’s Grocery. This ceremony dates back to 1954, when the Woman’s Club first planted the tree on this site.
Everyone attending should wear masks and maintain a safe distance from those not in your own family. Rather than setting out open trays of cookies, Woman’s Club volunteers will pass out bags of Christmas candy.
Despite those changes necessitated by Covid-19 protocol, some Tree Lighting traditions will remain the same. Members of the Boca Grande Clergy will offer readings and the timeless message of Christmas. Children from The Island School will participate in a live nativity scene.
Each year the BGWC designates an organization or individual to serve as Honorary Tree Lighter for the ceremony.
The Boca Grande Woman’s Club wishes to recognize the contributions all of these individuals have made to our community by naming them our Honorary Tree Lighters!
Come and take part in this festive start to the Christmas season!
