Borough in Search of Christmas Tree for Triangle Park
Borough Councilman Mike Waddell puts out the call for a Christmas tree donation at Monday night’s Emmaus Borough Council meeting.
Once all of the praise and thank you’s for a successful Halloween Parade and 5K race were finished, Emmaus Borough Council turned its thoughts to another Emmaus tradition – the borough Christmas tree lighting in Triangle Park.
Councilman Michael Waddell brought up the topic of the borough’s need of a Christmas tree donation at Monday night’s borough council meeting, describing the borough’s ideal Christmas tree.
“It should be 30- to 35-feet tall,” he said, “with no flat spots. We are looking or a tree. If you have one on your property that’s that right size, contact Craig (Neely, the borough manager.)”
The tree donor doesn’t have to live in the Borough, Waddell added.
Waddell also suggested to Councilman Nathan Brown, who heads the borough’s Community Relations, Planning and Development Committee, that the borough look into getting a plaque to honor those who donate Christmas trees each year.
The donors’ names could be engraved on the plaque, which would be hung in borough hall, he said.
