LET’S LIGHT UP LADD!
Ladd’s Main Avenue is going to have a 25′ Christmas Tree this year – thanks to the generosity of the Tom Giachetto family! The tree will be put up by our wonderful Village workers in the North Central Bank’s empty lot. Lighting of the tree will be the finale of Ladd’s 2021 Christmas Walk, following the Snowman Parade. Once the parade has ended, return to the corner of Main & Elm to witness the lighting of this beautiful tree by a Ladd Grade School student. A 25′ tree takes lots of lights! Will you help LIGHT UP LADD? $20 will purchase a string of lights and we will add your name and post our Scroll of Christmas Spirit. Light donations can be dropped off at Village Hall, the North Central Bank drive-thru, or Venmo to Tree Chair Jan Martin: Venmo username Jan-Martin-61329. See you at 5:30 pm at the corner of Elm Street & Main Avenue on Saturday, December 11th! Click here for the Let’s Light Up Ladd! donation form.
