Christmas Tree Celebration Tradition Continues


Dec. 9, 2005 – A long-running tradition on St. John continues Wednesday, Dec. 14.
The Coral Bay Christmas Tree Celebration and Carol Sing will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Coral Bay basketball courts.
All Coral Bay "villages" – neighborhoods, organizations and groups – are invited to share their own selection of carols.
The Coral Bay tradition began in the early 1960s. Of the founding group, Eirleen and George January and Lucy Smith Prince are still in the area, said long-time organizer Alvis Christian. A number of other organizers have helped them over the years, and the Coral Bay Community Council and the John's Folly Learning Institute are helping host the event this year.
Organizers are encouraging residents to bring ornaments for the local Christmas tree and wrapped toys or books for children, labeled boy or girl with the appropriate age. Organizers will serve refreshments, but welcome snack donations.
"So, if you can, bring an ornament, a child's gift, and some food to share.but most important, bring your voice and desire to share in the harmony and togetherness of the Coral Bay Community," said
organizer Sharon Coldren.
Groups planning on presenting carols or anyone with questions should call the Coral Bay Community Council in advance at 776-2099 to be included in the written program.
