The evening was filled with surprises inside and outside of the center. There was standing room only with families coming to share in the holiday festivities. Attendees were treated to performances produced by Stepp Stuart and special guest soloist Stephen Akin.
There program included lots of treats: cotton candy, hot chocolate, apple cider, popcorn and a station to decorate your own fresh baked cookies. The tree lighting began inside with more than 15 trees being lit all at once to ignite the center.

“This is how we do in District 3 with excellence and quality…this night was electric”, said Johnson.
