Marshall tree lighting ceremony

A tree lighting ceremony was held at the Marshall Center tonight. The ceremony featured a musical performance by children from the Marshall Child Development Center. Santa also made an appearance. Organizers say it’s a nice break from working on rocket ships.

“We work hard throughout the year and this is one of the times throughout the year when we can all come together and remind ourselves how important our families are,” said Marshall Associate Director, Steve Miley.

Kids also got to participate in holiday-themed activities and Santa’s workshop, and there was hot chocolate and cookies for everyone.
