Lights on Main Street? Sandy Won’t Stop Us!

Getting the Main Street Trees Dressed for the Holidays!

It’s that time of year… time to get the lights strung on the Main Street Trees!  And ready for the Holiday Trust Fund’s Downtown Tree Lighting on Friday, November 23rd at 6 pm!

This year, our Main Street Lights Elf, has been working overtime in Ridgefield and Wilton getting power to the people, and his time commitment to us is going to be limited.  However, thankfully another elf has stepped-up, and will soon be in the cherry picker stringing the lights in the trees.  In times of need, we think Ridgefielders are amazing!

The Holiday Trust Fund  is desperately in need of funds to help with the hanging of the lights, the garlands for the lamposts and the electric costs ~ which have been sliced-in-half with the addition of LED lights.

If you can donate, please send a check to:

Holiday Trust Fund

400 Main Street

Ridgefield, CT 06877

No amount is too small.. or too large.

Thank you!!!
