Thank you!! Together We Brightened the Community

Every year it is our honor to bring twinkle and cheer to the neighborhood during the holiday season. The tradition of "lighting the poles" creates an inviting avenue for visitors passing through our lovely town and brings about a sense of warmth and community for all who live here. The cold winter months and inclement New England weather can be pretty tough on the light strands, and replacing them annually presents a significant ongoing cost. Thankfully, when we all work together, we can make it happen! We presented the community with the opportunity to help the good cause, and the outpouring of enthusiasm and financial support has been overwhelming. We are so grateful and moved by everyone’s generosity. A special thank you goes out to HB Energy Solutions and their merry elves for hanging the banners and doing such a beautiful job of putting up the lights. HB provides us with an enormous amount of assistance with this project, and we’d like to give a huge shout out to Brian Hernon and his team for their amazing efforts setting up Santa’s house and doing the legwork for the tree lighting ceremony. We’d also like to express our gratitude to Jeff Graham ofGraham & Veroff, P.C. for donating such a beautiful tree for the Downtown Holiday Program. Thanks to Bibens Home Center for their support, as well as Old Mill Road Media for their contribution. Much appreciation goes to our partners, Springfield On the Move and the Springfield Garden Club, for the lovely wreathes, and thanks to the downtown businesses that decorated their storefronts so creatively. Thank you also to the Town of Springfield for approving some necessary repairs to the electrical system. And we hope you got a chance to check out SOM's new lighting of the falls which can be viewed from the Park Street bridge! The downtown avenue is looking festive and bright, and the Chamber wants to express utmost appreciation to the following organizations and individuals who helped us to Light the Poles for the holiday season:
