The Garden City Park Civic Association recently turned on the lights on its beautiful Christmas Tree outside Citibank located in the King Kullen Shopping Center on Jericho Turnpike.

The Association once again hosted the tree lighting. Attendees were entertained by festive holiday music, refreshments and a special appearance by Santa Claus. Attending the event were members of the Garden City Park Civic Association, elected officials and many residents. Special thanks was extended to Holiday Tree Lighting coordinator Tony Colon, NHP Dad’s Club, which provided refreshments, and the Garden City Park Fire Department for setting up the tree.

As a member of the Dad’s Club for the local high school, John often participates in events such as these in the surrounding neighborhood.
