Bordentown Township’s annual Tree Lighting Ceremony is set to be held Monday, Dec. 1 at 6 p.m. The event is scheduled to be held in conjunction with the annual Art/Essay Award Ceremony.

Beginning outside of the municipal building, the ceremony will feature two songs by the Madrigal Honors, a chorus provided by the Bordentown Regional High School vocal music director, Scottie LaMarra.

After the mayor counts down to the lighting of the tree, the ceremony will proceed to the Community Center to host the Art/Essay Award Ceremony for grade school students. First place winners will receive a trophy and a ribbon on their work. Second and third place winners will have a ribbon placed on their work as well.

This year, Bordentown Township has a mailbox that is exclusively for letters to Santa. It will be placed outside during the ceremony, but moved indoors afterward into the municipal building for residents to mail their children’s letters to Santa until Christmas Eve.

A surprise visitor is set to arrive by fire truck and will be available after the award ceremony for free Santa photographs, courtesy of Investors Bank.

There will be light refreshments served that will be donated by Mastoris Diner, Town & Country Diner and the Bordentown Township’s Senior Citizen Club.

Bordentown residents are encouraged to bring friends, family and neighbors to join in the celebration.
