GROTON — The Groton Interfaith Council will again host the annual Groton Community Tree Lighting ceremony on the front lawn of Union Congregational Church on Sunday, Dec. 2 at 4 pm.

The tree lighting ceremony will feature music provided by members of the Groton Brass Ensemble and the Nashoba Valley Concert Band, readings, blessings and prayers by members of the Groton Interfaith Council, and singing of Carols.

Each year, the Groton Interfaith Council honors a citizen or group of citizens by asking them to be the honorary tree lighters, an honor bestowed because they have made significant contributions to the town.

This year we will be honoring the Nashua River Watershed Association and the Nashua River Wild and Scenic Study Committee, in honor of the regional work they have done to preserve our local rivers, and we would like to invite representatives of those two groups to light the tree.

Immediately following the tree lighting, Union Congregation Church will host a reception inside the church with warm drinks and homemade cookies.

The event is free and open to the public.
