“Toledo Chamber of Commerce and the Toledo Downtown Association hosted their annual Toledo Holiday Tree Lighting on December 2 from 5-8 pm at the Toledo Union Hall. Santa was there with a special gift for the kids with his elf Pam. Mayor Billie Jo Smith, City Council Member Deanne Dunlap, Pat Timme, Scott Klint donated their time to assist in serving cookies and beverages at the Union Hall. A few of the Toledo Street Market vendors were there to help with unique Christmas gifts.
Our successful event was made possible by several community members who volunteered their time to assist in decorating the tree, making goodies, and donating time and funds to the event. Toledo had a great turnout and hope to continue to grow this event year after year. A big Thank you to the community for supporting our event!
