Welcome Back Holiday Season


By Thomas Sellers Jr.

The City of Millington invites the public out to the Tree Lighting Ceremony Dec. 3 beginning at 6 p.m. on the front lawn of the Millington Public Library located at 4858 Navy Road. The city’s Christmas tree will be lit up at 6:30.
Things will be a little different this year, so all guests will have to be on the front lawn. Mini filled stockings will be given to first 50 children in attendance. The child must be present to receive a stocking. Santa won’t be in attendance because of COVID-19 precautions.
“While this year is different, we still expect it to be great,” City of Millington representatives said. “We hope to and your families at the tree lighting.” Practice social distancing and wear a face mask.
