Members of the Southern Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce will host their ninth annual Christmas tree lighting program at TownsEdge Shopping Village, Quarryville, on Friday night, December 6.
It's time the weather changed.
For the past four years, members of the Southern Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce have had to cope with rain on the night they light a community Christmas tree.
They have had drizzle, showers, and at least one cold downpour.
This year will be different, organizer Pete Rush said last week as he stood under a roof and watched rain soak the tree.
In past years, the weather has probably kept attendance down, Rush said. Last year, about 400 people braved a cold rain to listen to music, drink hot chocolate, and welcome Santa.
"This year, we're going to have either a clear day or snow," he said. "There will be no rain."
