Lucky for me I get to celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas. Hanukkah lit its last candle on December 8th. The menorah in it's full glory is something I love to see. How nice that as the menorah lights go out, we light up the trees on the Lynn Common and in Central Square. There is SO MUCH going on tomorrow night. Not the least of which is Lynn Museum's continuation of the Lynn Legacies series.
Begin the Evening at Lynn City Hall with Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy and All Care Hospice for the lighting of the City tree, then travel to Central Square where you'll be greeted with hot chowder (courtesy of the Porthole Restaurant, Diamond Kitchen & Catering and Sidekim Foods), holiday dance tunes and Santa Claus! Not to mention the lighting of the Central Square tree. Our tree is way cooler than City Hall's. :-)
While you're there purchase a ticket for a holiday tree raffle (1 for $1, 3 for $5), and shop LynnArts, TLGUTS, and Subterranean (all within 25 Exchange Street).
This event is generously sponsored by the Daily Item of Lynn and is funded by the City of Lynn through the Offices of Community Development and Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy. Go Jamie and Judy (the dream team in my humble opinion).
Holiday in the Square is created by: LynnArts, the Lynn Area Chamber of Commerce, the Daily Item with help from All Care Hospice Inc., Columbia Insurance (John Olson is the man!) and the Office of Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy.
Raffle trees have been decorated by: LynnArts, the Lynn Area Chamber of Commerce, the Daily Item, The Lynn Museum and Historical Society, the North Shore Community College Arts Council, RAW Arts and DTLna with TLGUTS.
