Thanks to the Shirley Scouts and ShirleyArts!, the annual town Tree Lighting will take place on Sunday, Dec. 2 at 5 p.m. at Whiteley Park. The Shirley Children’s Touring Christmas Choir will provide the singing. The Scouts will provide the cookies and hot chocolate. Then, thanks to the Fire Department, Santa and his elf will arrive to light the tree and pass out candy canes.
