The South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association is having its annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony outside the Perry Street Cafe (1002 S. Perry Street) on Tuesday Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. Come and enjoy carols and treats and chat with your neighbors.
This is also the official kick off of the "Brighten the Night" campaign which will encourage residents to leave their porch lights on to illuminate streets, alleys and sidewalks so the area is more welcoming to visitors and shoppers. Hopefully this will cut down on burglary attempts, too.
This event replaces the monthly SPBNA meeting - to all of you who have asked how to connect with SPBNA and when the group meets, come to this event and meet everyone. The picture is from last year's Christmas tree lighting.
