Hughson Garden Club handles lighting

The Hughson Garden Club will oversee lighting of the community's Christmas tree in Centennial Park, Seventh and Hughson avenues, Saturday at 5 p.m.

The event will include a tribute to troops — attendees are invited to bring something to share about a loved one serving overseas. Messages later will be posted on the Veterans of Foreign Wars banner at City Hall.

The evening includes entertainment by the River Lights Chorus, the arrival of Santa Claus with help from the Hughson Fire Department, and coffee, hot chocolate, hot cider and cookies from the United Samaritans Foundation. For more information, e-mail or call 883-4578 or 883-2483.
