On Saturday, December 5, 2015, Egg Harbor City held their Annual Tree Lighting at 6pm. Chamber of Commerce’s, Jim Schroeder, started the festivities off by announcing Reverend Kathleen of Zion Lutheran Church who gave the invocation. Mayor Jiampetti welcomed everyone and asked that we keep our Troops and Veterans in our prayers this holiday season. There was music, sing-a-long, treats for the children, and a visit from Santa arriving on a fire truck. Lovely performances by Pilgrim Academy Bell Ringers rang us into the spirit of Christmas with many holiday tunes, Cedar Creek High School had two soloist sing Christmas tunes that got the children dancing in their spots and a special appearance by “Elvis” made the musical spirit of Christmas come alive on Philadelphia Avenue in Egg Harbor City.
