The Annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony is performed in honor of Patricia Haltness and her work to improve the quality of life for the residents of Valdez. The Tree Lighting is an event for all ages with carols and hot beverages around the tree, followed by crafts and pictures with Santa in the Library.
For increased visibility during the caroling attendees are encouraged to wear a headlamp. Professional pictures with Santa will not be offered this year. Families interested in taking pictures with Santa are encouraged to bring personal cameras.
