Sandy Hook Tree Lighting to feature only 1 tree this year

This year's annual Sandy Hook Tree Lighting ceremony will be a little different.  The Newtown Bee reports that instead of a pair of trees being lit, only one will.  The tree in The Glen, has been lit by Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity for the past six years.  But the Newtown Public Works Department said they would not be able to use bucket trucks to string the lights because the tree has grown too close to power lines.  They can't get within 10 feet of wires.  


The tree at 2 Washington Avenue, in Sandy Hook's business center, has been lit for the past three years and will be the focus of tonight's ceremony. 


The Bee reports that SHOP has asked attendees to bring donations for FAITH Food Pantry in exchange for a chance to light the Glen tree, but a family in Sandy Hook had already been chosen to light the other tree.  The random winner will join the family in lighting the other tree. 


The 16th Annual Sandy Hook Tree Lighting begins at 4pm, with the actual lighting taking place at 6pm.
