Rockville Centre celebrates annual tree lighting


Rockville Centre residents joined local officials and other community members at the Village Green on Nov. 30 to flip the switch on the village’s Christmas tree lights and officially ring in the holiday season.

Mayor Francis Murray greeted the crowd and Msgr. William Koenig blessed the attendees before the South Side High School choir sang holiday favorites. Frosty the Snowman and Santa Claus made cameos, bringing the hundreds of all ages joy and cheer.
