Members of the community joined the group at the Blackville Municipal Park. Committee members Wendy Vickers and Naomi Savoie read aloud the names of the people for whom bulbs were purchased. The crowd socialized, sang Christmas carols, and enjoyed hot chocolate and candy canes, followed by the lighting of the tree.
