EPS, Holy Name help ECBIA decorate for Tree Lighting

by Sylene Argent

Holiday spirits were flying high last Wednesday afternoon as students from Essex Public School and Holy Name Catholic Elementary School helped the Essex Centre BIA in decorating the Christmas Tree in front of the Essex Municipal Building, just in time for the Tree Lighting event.

  Before heading down to the Essex Municipal Building on Wednesday morning, the students worked hard on creating a variety of ornaments for the Christmas tree, including colourful bulbs and ones that looked like reindeer. They were proud to hang their creations for the whole town to see during the Tree Lighting event that took place on Friday evening.

  The Essex Centre BIA asked the students to create the decorations as a way to not only beautify the tree for the holiday season, but to also get more community involvement for the Tree Lighting event.

  Mike Nadalin’s grade four class from Holy Name took part in the decorating initiative, as did around 230 youngsters from Essex Public School, under the direction of teacher Sheri Diemer.

  The Essex Centre BIA was pleased to provide the of creative kids with hot chocolate and candy canes for their efforts in helping to decorate the tree for the holiday season. The Essex Centre BIA was also grateful to the teachers for their support in the initiative.
