Burlington School News: Christmas tree lighting and music programs combined this year
December 18, 2020
The annual FFA Christmas tree lighting and Christmas music program were combined this year. The event was held at the park in Burlington on Monday, Dec. 14.
The Lions Club served chili, hot chocolate and coffee. This helped keep everyone a little bit warmer, considering the temperature was below freezing.
Burlington FFA members cut and delivered a tree to the park and put lights on it. To allow for social distancing, students from Pre-K through 12th grade bundled up and presented their music program to a crowd after the tree lighting. Burlington choir members sang songs and carols as well.
At the end of the night, Bellamy and Co. auctioned off Christmas trees made out of wood pallets that FFA students made. Santa also made an appearance.
