The Whitney Point Tree Lighting Ceremony was Friday the second of December and I apologize for not having this video up sooner than this. The hustle and bustle of the holidays and my schedule definitely got the best of me.

This years tree lighting ceremony was in support for the Haynes and Chandler family who lost everything in a fire Tuesday November 29th. Leaving family members hospitalized.

"The community really came together in a few days,Whitney Point Mayor Ryan Reynolds said. Raising over $22,000.00 for them and obtaining all new clothing, furniture and housing for them. To watch a community of this size really come together like this and be so supportive of one another. We really are like a family here."

As you can see in the video a lot of the Whitney point residents braved the cold temperatures to attend the ceremony. Donating clothes, household items, and other necessities to the Haynes and Chandler family.

I say the Holiday Spirit is alive and well in Whitney Point!
