Mayor’s Holiday Tree Lighting scheduled for Dec. 2

The 25th Annual lighting of the Mayor’s Holiday Tree will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2 at Corinth Square.

Santa will make an early appearance this holiday season at Corinth Square.

Mayor Ron Shaffer will be joined by Dickens Carloers, the St. Ann’s Elementary School Choir, dancers from Dancerz Unlimited, and, of course, Santa Claus, for the evening’s festivities. The Corinth merchants will also be hosting a Holiday Open House that night, providing a gift wrapping service and free refreshments.

The event, which is organized by the Prairie Village Municipal Foundation, will also raise funds for the Mayor’s Holiday Tree Fund, which provides assistance to people having difficulty paying their utility bills. Last year, local residents and businesses donated more than $9,300 to the fund.
