Lights of Wells Tree Lighting Ceremony Friday, Dec. 10.

T he community of Wells will welcome the return of the holiday season with its annual Lights of Wells Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, Dec. 10.

The third annual ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m. on the village green, off Route 30 near the library and the community’s churches.

The festive occasion includes the tree lighting, holiday music, tasty treats, live music, community togetherness, and even a special guest from the far north.

Head Selectman Don Pruess will welcome attendees, which usually number around 200 townsfolk, before the tree is lit.

“The tree will feature all new LED lights,” said Michelle (Morey) Bates.

The evening will feature plenty of entertainment to help spread the holiday spirit.

Some of the children from the village school will sing Christmas carols and Father Bill Davidson will recite a short Christmas story.

“The Castleton College and Community Band will play, which is something new and very exciting,” said (Morey) Bates.

The band is made up primarily of brass instruments and will play some of the holiday’s most recognizable jingles.

And of course the event wouldn’t be complete without an appearance by Santa and the Lights of Wells won’t disappoint.

“Santa will be coming on a horse-drawn wagon donated by Larson’s Farm,” said (Morey) Bates.

Reports suggest he may even come bearing treats if everyone has been on their best behavior.

Following the ceremony, residents are welcome to stop in one of the two churches or by the library for delectable treats.

The Methodist Church will have refreshments, cookies and popcorn and St. Paul’s Church will have coffee, sandwiches, and birthday cake. The library is expected to have cider and cookies.

“There will be goodies everywhere,” said (Morey) Bates.

Anyone who would like to learn more about the annual Lights of Wells ceremony is encouraged to call (Morey) Bates at 645-0934.
