Hyde Park’s 20th annual wreath lighting happens Saturday, Dec. 5, with a lighting ceremony at the Gihon Valley Hall in North Hyde Park village.

Community members may purchase lights in honor, memory or celebration of a loved one or event. Commemorative lights should be ordered by Nov. 21. Lights are $5 each.

Proceeds provide funding for the wreath lighting, as well as the ongoing renovation of the hall. 

One wreath will be placed in Hyde Park Village at the courthouse and one in North Hyde Park at the Gihon Valley Hall.
