the sub-freezing temperatures forecasted for Friday afternoon have caused
Hamilton Township’s Town Hall Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony to be cancelled,
Santa is still ‘coming to town’ for an elementary school in Hamilton.
Township’s Town Hall Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony has traditionally been
held in the afternoon so that students at neighboring Greenwood Elementary
School could stand outside and watch the ceremony from across the street.
However, temperatures forecasted for Friday afternoon will be too cold to allow
the students to be able to stand outside and safely enjoy the ceremony.
the ceremony cancellation, Greenwood Elementary School students will still
receive a special visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus along with Hamilton Township
Mayor Kelly Yaede on Friday afternoon.
the cold temperatures will not allow students to be able to safely enjoy an
outside ceremony this year, that won’t stop Santa and Mrs. Claus from visiting
them indoors that day,” explains Mayor Kelly Yaede.
Mrs. Claus will be joined by Mayor Yaede to pass out candy canes to the
students inside the school.
Hall Christmas Tree, which was generously donated by resident Cindy McKenna,
will be fully lit beginning on Friday evening. Residents or motorists traveling
past Hamilton’s Municipal Building on Greenwood Avenue can enjoy the beautifully
lit Christmas Tree during the rest of the holiday season.
