Main Street Edwardsville
6TH Annual Edwardsville Warrior Tree Lighting
Honor and remember our local heroes in the U.S. Military
The Edwardsville Warrior Tree Project is a Community Christmas Tree planted in Veterans Park located on the corners of Main and Church Streets, Edwardsville, PA. Its main goal is to Honor and Remember the Sacrifices made by our Local Heroes in the US Armed Forces, namely, to Honor all the Holiday Seasons missed with family and friends at home.
We Honor our Brave Warriors every year by holding a Decorating Day and a Tree Lighting Ceremony in Veterans Park, complete with our very own SGT Santa Parade on Main Street. Decorating Day is when we invite Recruiters from all Military Branches to come with their Future Candidates to decorate the Warrior Tree, while the Tree Lighting Ceremony is when we invite all Service Members (past, present and future) along with their families, friends and neighbors in the community to come to Veterans Park for a day of family fun while Celebrating and Honoring their Service to our Great Country. This year, Decorating Day will be held on Saturday, November 23, 2019, from 12:00pm to 2:00pm, with our 6th Annual Lighting Ceremony to follow on Sunday, November 24, 2019, from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. Both events are always free and open to the public. Everyone is invited to participate.
Till they all come home for Christmas!!!
