Announcement and final countdown for tree lighting


Due to the damage of trees and loss of power from Hurricane Florence to the area where we held our event in past years, we are unfortunately, forced to minimize our tree lighting event to one hour this year. Despite the change in logistics, our intention is to hold our event to provide our community with the best event we can with what we have to work with.

In addition, our annual Make Havelock Shine contest will be held during the week of December 9 – 12th. Our committee will choose a winner in the following categories: Carolina Christmas, Religious Theme, Children’s Theme, Techno Christmas, and the Joyce Blackburn Award.  We also recognize a local business, the Best Neighborhood and choose an Honorable Mention.

Please, make sure that your Christmas decorations are out and lights are turned on during the week of December 9 – 12 for judging!
