Holiday Celebrations 2015

The chamber was busy recently kicking off the start of the holiday season here in town. Once again we’re thankful to the Holbrook Fire Department for putting up all of our decorations. We started the festivities on December 5, with the annual lighting of the town Christmas tree. We had a great turn out and of course the weather was unseasonably warm. But that didn’t prevent our visitor from the north pole from stopping by. Watch a short video recap of the event. Then on December 6, we were right back out celebrating the start of Chanukah with the lighting of the first ‘candle’ on the town Menorah. Thanks to Rabbi Steven Moss of B’nai Isreal Reform Temple for leading the festivities. We have a few pictures for those that were unable to attend.
