Mayor's Holiday Tree Lighting - December 1

Post Date:11/30/2016 8:39 AM
Celebrate the start of the holiday season with friends, family, and neighbors at the 31st Annual Prairie Village Mayor’s Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony! The tree lighting is sponsored by the Prairie Village Foundation, the City of Prairie Village, and Corinth Square Shops.

This year’s ceremony will be held on Thursday, December 1st from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Corinth Square. Mayor Laura Wassmer will kick off the start of the season along with Santa, Dancerz Unlimited, the Shawnee Mission East Drum Line, and special guest KC Wolf. Hot chocolate and treats will be provided.

The Mayor’s Holiday Tree is lit each year to serve as a reminder of our Prairie Village community members in need. Money raised for the Mayor's Holiday Tree Fund helps deserving and qualified Prairie Village residents with utility assistance, home maintenance needs, food assistance, and other vital needs. The City works with Johnson County Human Services and Heartland Habitat for Humanity to pinpoint specific necessities. This may mean paying an electric, gas, or water bill when a resident simply cannot. Or, it could be receiving assistance with a nagging plumbing problem or adding a fresh coat of exterior paint to the home.

Donations for this worthwhile cause can be made to the Prairie Village Foundation, Attn: Mayor’s Holiday Tree, 7700 Mission Rd, Prairie Village, KS 66208 or online at www.prairievillagefoundation.com. You can also bring your donation to the Mayor’s Holiday Tree Lighting. Your donation to the Mayor’s Tree Fund will help our neighbors spread the spirit every day of the year.
