BRCC Tree Trimming and Wassail Party

The annual tree lighting ceremony sponsored by the Black Rock Community Council will take place on Sunday, December 2nd at 5 pm at the Brewster Street Flagpole.  Local school children will perform and Santa will arrive on board Ladder 11 thanks to the Bridgeport Fire Department.  Refreshments will be served. This year's Christmas Tree for the annual tree lighting ceremony is being donated by J.P. Philbin's Nursery, a brand new business coming to Black Rock in the Spring of 2013. Philbin's will be located on Fairfield Avenue just past the Ash Creek Bridge.  

The Wassail Party immediately follows at the Norden Club (4 Seabright Avenue).  Hors d'oeuvres and holiday cheer.  (BRCC members only)

Hi, Gail -- hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Could you please clarify the date of this event? In the description, it says Sun. Dec. 2, but underneath it and on the calendar, it's listed as Wed. Dec. 5. Assuming it's Sun.? Thanks!

TJ, Thank you for catching this error.  I've corrected it.  The BRCC tree trimming is always held on the first Sunday of December every year.
