JHBG Tree Lighting Ceremony 2009
Jackson Heights / December 16, 2009. Ah yes, another year gone by. So hard to believe that ought ten is only two weeks away. The Jackson Heights Beautification Group [aka JHBG] hosted another tree lighting event in front of the U.S. Post Office on 37th Avenue near 78th Street.
This year the emcee was Len Maniace and the prayer was given by the reverend standing next to him [see photo album for many more and larger photos]. Some of the teachers from the school provided a little holiday performance with their class[es] aiding in the reading and chorus. A man with a guitar accompanied the singing. Meanwhile the post office Christmas tree sat waiting quietly for its big moment. Click here to view photos of the Jackson Heights Beautification Group's annual Christmas Tree Lighting event 2009. And happy holidays.
