Odell tree lighting.jpg

Organizers of last year’s Odell Christmas tree lighting gather during the event. Come to the Wy’East Fire District station on Monday for the second annual tree lighting, with cookies to follow at Wy’east Community Church.

The Odell Christmas tree lighting event happens Monday, Dec. 9 beginning at 6 p.m. at the Wy’East Fire District - Odell Fire Department. The event will coincide with the annual Christmas fire truck parade (see page A5 for parade route).

A group from Mid Valley Elementary will sing at 6:30 p.m., and a small thanks will be given by this year’s program leader, Samantha Garcia. Hot chocolate and cookies, donated by Packer Orchards and Bakery, will be provided downstairs at the Wy’east Community Church, located across the street from the fire department, at 7 p.m. The tree is again provided by Torres Lawn Service. The event is additionally sponsored by the Odell Hispanic Coalition.
