WOW!!! Working with the newly formed Nanuet High School Junior Chamber of Commerce in only a few weeks Nanuet’s first Tree Lighting Celebration was a huge success. Despite the cold, approximatley 300+ residents turned out for this first time event. There was a heated tent to offer respite from the cold and the Junior Chamber was offering face painting for the kids for a small donation to help their club.
GIANT KUDO’s to the Junior Chamber for all their efforts and hard work in reaching out to local businesses and individuals for their support and donations. The members of the Junior Chamber coordinated the layouts for the event and solicited participation by several other high school clubs and entertainment groups.
In addition to the Nanuet Junior Chamber and the Nanuet Chamber of Commerce who had tables, several participants included the Nanuet HS – Class of 2020, Black & Gold Club, Hi-Tor Animal Shelter, W.I.N., Interact Club among others. The Dawg House and Nanuet Restaurant were on hand offering free hot dogs, water, pizza, pretzel bites, etc. Several clubs were selling hot chocolate, donuts and hand made ornaments to raise money for their respective clubs.
Entertainment included Vincent DiMartino a DJ, the Helen Hayes Youth Theater, the Nanuet High School Orchestra, Coupe Dance Studio (Coupe Rockettes) and Irish Youth Dancers. Of course, the main attraction was Santa Claus himself who was despite being fashionably late (he had been overseeing his elves working overtime), Santa arrived with sirens blaring on a Nanuet Fire Department truck. He gave out candy to all the children who shared their wish lists with him.
