Holiday Lights Going Up Today and Tomorrow
Thanks to all residents who donated for our annual Fall fundraising campaign (and those who are still planning to) for making the holiday lights possible and a special thanks to our Treasurer Jack H for coordinating with Sav-a-Tree. The lights are going up today and tomorrow.
As a reminder, the City won't let us leave them up year round (hurts the trees), which is why we must take them down in February. But we get to enjoy them through all the dark winter nights.
There is still plenty of time and reason to make a donation. We'll need money next year to pay for bringing the lights down (usually around $2000), as well as flowers for the tree beds ($750) and 3 travel scholarships for HSES (at $500 apiece). Either drop off a check made payable to "The West 55th Street Block Association" with the doorman at 340 West 55 or make a donation through PayPal at our website: west55ba.org. (Click on the yellow Donate button in the lower left on the homepage.) Thanks for helping make this such a terrific neighborhood!
