Squeals of delight will once again echo through Nurses’ Hall to the front lawn of the State House during the Annual Tree Lighting event on Monday, December 12, as nearly 150 children (and many adults) will gather for holiday festivities with Governor Patrick.
Hot chocolate, cookie making stations and an amazing craft-making station will be waiting for the youth that participate at several afterschool programs.
Governor Patrick looks forward to hosting the children and their families and having them join him as he lights the now permanent State House Tree. It is a challenge to know who has more fun, the kids or the Governor’s staff who volunteers to pull it all together, creating fantastic memories for the children who are so deserving of a wonderful winter wonderland…at the State House!
Governor Patrick invites the public to join him at the State House on Monday at 5:00 p.m. for all the holiday activities.
