The community is invited to join Mayor Lois Jackson and members of the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen this Saturday, Dec. 14 at 4 p.m. to light up the park at Diefenbaker Park.

This festive family gathering will celebrate the season with over 16 trees lit up, including the big tree, which which will sparkle with over 1,700 lights.

For the past few weeks, local Rotarian volunteers have braved wind and rain to ensure the trees throughout the Rotary WaterWorks water park will be ready for Christmas viewing.

The event includes free hot chocolate served by the SDSS Interact students, carolling by Beach Grove Elementary students, under the direction of  teacher Karen Masters, and trees decorated by the Grade 5/6 class of Mr. Preddy of Pebble Hill Traditional School.

The Rotary Club of Tsawwassen would like to thank the event's many sponsors, without whom toffers a HUGE thank you to the following, without whom this project could not have been completed:

Double R Rentals, Lore Electric, Bartlett Tree Experts, Frontier Excavating, and the local residents who graciously opened their home to a crew of wet and muddy Rotarians, enabling them to have a dry and warm place to eat their lunch on the most miserable and stormiest of days.
