Harrisburg, PA – Mayor Eric Papenfuse and the Mayor’s Interfaith Advisory Council will lead the City’s annual Giant Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2017, in the atrium of the MLK Government Center, 10 N. Second St.
“PEACE ON EARTH . . . PEACE AT HOME” is the theme of this year’s celebration, which is sponsored by Giant Foods, which will provide refreshments at the event. The company donated the 26-foot tall tree as a gift to the City in December 2014 during Mayor Papenfuse’s first year in office.
The Mayor will offer remarks at the event, and members of the Mayor’s Interfaith Advisory Council will offer words of inspiration as well as readings of poetry and musical selections. Rev. Nate Gadsden and Chaplain Russell Goodman are co-chairs of the Mayor’s Interfaith Advisory Council, and the Rev. Sandy Strauss, Director of Advocacy & Ecumenical Outreach for the Pennsylvania Council of Churches, will serve as Mistress of Ceremonies.
