The Stockade Association

Tree Lighting Ceremony 2022

Our annual Stockade Association Tree Lighting will be held on Sunday, December 4, at 5:30pm at Lawrence Circle.

Calling neighbors to gather after 5:15 at Lawrence circle, N. Ferry, Front & Green Streets. Join in the singing of carols led by Justin Friello. Rev. Peter Carmen will give a blessing. We all look forward with great anticipation to the joyous look on the faces of our neighborhood children (ages 5-12) as they magically light our beautiful tree from The Saratoga Tree Nursery, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. Many thanks to neighbor Susannah Hand for arranging this generous donation and to the City Parks Dept. employees for delivering and helping with the lighting. Dress warm and bring your best singing voice!

Join in The After~Glow!

Follow the luminaries from Lawrence to St. George‚Äôs Great Hall to continue the holiday celebration with Santa, refreshments, music, and friends. Share a dish… neighbors are asked to drop off finger food snacks and sweets to the Great Hall before the Tree Lighting, starting at 4:30pm. Beverages provided.
