Letter: Thanks for support of tree lighting

Thanks for support of tree lighting

To the wonderful community of Snowmass Village,

Thank you all for helping us light up the night at Snowmass Village’s second annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Nov. 30. Cookies and hot cocoa from Clark’s Market, a blazing fire, music with Mack Bailey, and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus riding atop a ladder truck courtesy of the Snowmass-Wildcat Fire Protection District were a great lead-up to the countdown by Mayor Markey Butler of the lighting of more than 30 trees that line Brush Creek Road. What a beautiful holiday sight!

We would like to thank all those who donated money to help make this community tree lighting possible. If you see them about town, please be sure to thank Snowmass Tourism, Clark’s Market, Snowmass Village Dental, the town of Snowmass Village, Mountain Chevrolet, the Viceroy, Taster’s Pizza, Alpine Bank, Anderson Ranch, Related/Snowmass Hospitality, Chuck and Marni Bond, Joan Bemis, Heather and Gary Beach in memory of Ruth Beach, Sunrise Carpet Cleaning, Robyn Scott Interiors, Joshua & Co. and Andrew Light.

Jeff Sivess and his crew at Driftbusters/Snowmass Lawn & Plant spent countless hours stringing the lights along Brush Creek Road, and Chris Tyler’s Aspen Lawn and Holiday Lights scaled to new heights to light the largest trees on the property. These guys were amazing to work with, and we are so grateful! Thank you to the Snowmass Sun and the town for help getting the word out, to the Johnson family for the donated nativity set and to Tim Belinski for building the nativity stable.

The ceremony may be over, but your chance to get in on the fun is not. New this year is a Snowmass Village resident call to action. Join forces with your neighbors or engage in a little neighborhood competition and create your own home light display for judging. To compete, submit your home address to the gift box at Snowmass Chapel, in the hall outside Clark’s Market Snowmass, or by emailing kara@snowmasschapel.org. Then, turn your lights on before 6 p.m. Dec. 18 to be judged for your chance to win a gift basket and recognition in the Snowmass Sun.

It takes a village to light up the night! Thank you Snowmass!

Happy Holidays from all of us at Snowmass Chapel,

Charla Belinski
