Friends of Town Hall


Annual Community Friendship Tree Lighting

Every year on the first Saturday of December the West Rutland community gathers at the town hall for the Christmas Tree Lightning.  The lights on the tree are provided by donations made in memory or in honor of loved ones.  The loved ones are remembered in a tree lighting publication available to those in attendance.  This special occasion is also marked by a timely visit from Santa who is usually accompanied by his lovely wife and some helpful elves.  In the spirit of friendship, community members are asked to bring cookies to share and enjoy.  This year’s Christmas Tree lighting will take place on Saturday, December 2nd at 6:30 pm.  Please join us for this special community gathering.

If you would like to make a donation to remember or honor your loved one please fill out the Friendship Tree donation form and return it to: Friendship Tree, P.O. Box 591, West Rutland, VT 05777 or drop it off at the Town Clerk’s Office in the Town Hall.
