treeAnnual Holiday Tree Lighting

The Chamber of Commerce teamed up with the Mayor and the City of Everett to make this year's holiday tree lighting a huge success.  Hundreds of residents gathering in Everett Square to see the Mayor's family, Santa, and Mrs. Claus and also to hear the Victorian Carolers, the High School Choir, Girl Scouts, and Brownies.  Other key event sponsors included:  the Everett Co-operative Bank, which hosted Santa and also distributed refreshments, photos, and candy; the Everett Credit Union, which hosted Mrs. Claus and the elves and also gave out candy canes; and Schnitzer-Northeast.  And, of course, a holiday event wouldn't be complete without Rudolph, who could be seen at Eagle Bank.  A special thanks to Chris Moreira from Square Deli, the Cub Scouts, the Boy Scouts, and the Venture Crew who provided assistance.

If you've been down Broadway recently, you couldn't help but notice the wonderful window art adorning many of our local businesses. 

At the Chamber's request, the Everett School Department sent several art students from the high school to Everett Square to show Everett residents and businesses just how talented they really are.  Students decorated many of our local merchants' windows just in tiime for the tree lighting ceremony on December 2. 

Many thanks to the students involved, and also to Ms. Daly, Ms. Jones, and Ms. LeRay from the Everett High School for making Broadway a bit more festive this year.
