Grove City will once again have a town Christmas tree.

“We need to end this year on something positive,” Heather Baker said at Monday night’s borough council meeting.

Baker, representing Olde Town Grove City, said it’s been many years since the downtown area has had a Christmas tree on display.

A 10-foot fir tree is being donated by Shawgo Christmas Tree Farm. Some of the decorations were donated by Walmart, she said.

The tree will be installed on Nov. 23 in the area of the gazebo, which is on South Broad Street at the Joseph D. Monteleone Youth Festival Park.

Olde Town Grove City is organizing activities for 4:30 p.m. Nov. 28, followed by a tree lighting ceremony at 5:30 p.m.

There will also be free movies at the Guthrie Theatre.

Members of the Cpl. Claire Van Eman Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 519, Grove City, plan to hang up hats and mittens downtown for those in need of winter gear, Baker said.
