Message from the Mayor
Mayor’s Remarks – Christmas Tree Lighting
Delivered, Friday December 1, 2017
First, thank you to Mr. Persad and the Union Springs Middle School Band for that great music.
I would like to say that I am still humbled to be the Mayor of our fine little village and I want to welcome everybody here to our 2017 Christmas Tree lighting.
I want to welcome Pastor Kevin Grish from the Cayuga Methodist Church who is going to offer an Invocation.
Thank you Pastor Grish. Tonight we’ve gathered once again in the center of our little Village to celebrate the most joyous time of the year. We are going to light our community tree here in a second let the lights, let the tree be a symbol of our joy, gratitude, friendship and community.
Without further ado, do all the children want to help me count down from 5?
5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Let us thank this evenings underwriters: Matson & Kellogg Benefits Group, Oakwood Service Center and Custom Sign Express. Without their continued financial support this evening and its wagon rides would not be possible.
On behalf of the Village Board, the Village Staff and our families let me extend best wishes for a happy holiday season. Thank you for coming.
Thanksgiving is our time to reflect on the year and be grateful for all that we have been given. Our personal circumstances differ, but on Thanksgiving, we take time to appreciate the bounty of our lives. I hope that you are able to be with family and friends to celebrate. I wish for you many blessing not just at Thanksgiving, but every day.
I look forward to seeing you all on Dec 1st as we come together as a community to celebrate the holiday season by lighting our village tree.
Mayor William Sherman
