Light Up The Town: Burlington Center Christmas Trees Returns — Participants Urgently Sought

With the challenges thrown at us during 2020, we need more than ever to bring some cheer to our community. The lighted holiday trees throughout the Central Business Corridor invite compliments from many neighboring towns. Let’s continue to bring joy to all who visit us. Help us light up our beautiful town center with 75 trees this year!

Once again, the town will put up three trees per business location and the Chamber will purchase the trees. We need your help to cover the tree cost plus the cost of replacing any lights. A minimum donation of $100 would be greatly appreciated, but during this difficult time, no contribution is too small. All donors will be recognized in our newsletter and on social media.

The trees will be put up and decorated during the second week of November. Please mail your checks to the Burlington Chamber of Commerce ASAP to ensure your business is showcased during the busy holiday season!

Please mail checks to: PO Box 1179, Burlington, CT 06013
