Community tree lighting Friday night
The community of Lititz first gathered to ring in the season in Lititz Springs Park in 1994, beginning what has become a welcome holiday tradition.
This Friday evening at 6:30 p.m., Christmas in the Park will commence with a prayer and the lighting of the community Christmas tree.
A 12-foot live Douglas Fir from the George K. Biemesderfer and Son Landscaping nursery was recently planted to serve as the permanent Lititz Springs Park Christmas Tree. The tree and planting were donated by George K. and Joyce G. Biemesderfer.
The tree lighting will be followed by a performance by the Warwick High School Concert Choir and Production Companies.
The centerpiece of the evening is the illumination of the park by candles. Each attendee receives a candle upon arriving, and by the end of the event, the park will twinkle with lit candles and luminaries.
The event wraps up as everyone is invited to sing carols along with the Concert Choir and Lititz Moravian Trombone Choir.
Those attending are encouraged to bring non-perishable edibles for a food drive for the Warwick/Lititz Community Chest. Local Boy Scouts will also be collecting for Toys for Tots. Coffee and hot chocolate will be sold, with proceeds benefiting the Warwick school sports program.
Approximately 75 Lititz residents are involved in the planning and execution of this hour-long event, according to event co-chair Ann Burkhart.
When asked her favorite part of Christmas in the Park, Burkhart responded, "The Currier and Ives feeling of people gathering and sharing a memorable time together. The unity of the community and seeing friends that you haven’t seen for awhile makes this event special."
