On Saturday, December 3, Council Member Elizabeth Crowley and the Ridgewood, Glendale and Middle Village Lions Club sponsored a tree lighting at the Frederick T. Haller Jr. Triangle in Glendale.
The event featured caroling from the Grover Cleveland High School choral group, The Clovers, a doggie holiday dress up contest for resident pets and a visit from Santa for neighborhood kids. The tree was decorated with the help of firefighters from Glendale’s firehouse, the Myrtle Turtles, Ladder Company 135 and Engine Company 286, using 100 percent recycled materials and solar powered lights, which automatically turn out at nightfall.
“Saturday’s tree lighting was a festive event for the residents of Glendale with a doggie dress up contest, caroling and gifts from Santa,” said Council Member Elizabeth Crowley. “It was a pleasure working with the local Lions Clubs to decorate the tree with environmentally sound lights and ornaments.”
