Tree lighting kicks off the holiday season

by: Vern Uyetake,

Chilly weather didn't stop the celebration last Friday during the 43rd annual Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony. Hannah Stead, left, Stephanie Aponte and Katrina Steinbocher, all members of Lake Oswego High School's Windjammers choral group, helped lead the crowd in singing holiday favorites at the sequoia tree near Safeway. The group then headed down to Millennium Plaza Park for a continuation of the celebration, which included performances by Lakeridge High School's Company and the Millennium Band along with a visit by Santa.
