Main Street: Murfreesboro/Rutherford County, Inc. is in search of a large tree to celebrate Christmas this holiday season. Kathleen Herzog with Main Street told News Radio WGNS...
Main Street is looking for an 18-20 foot tall evergreen-preferably a fir or blue or Norwegian spruce from Rutherford County. On December 4th, the Rutherford County Courthouse comes aglow as the community comes together for our Annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Celebration. There will be singing, caroling, delicious treats and, of course, a visit by Santa Claus. The Public Square turns festive on this night when our merchants stay open late, restaurants offer holiday specials, and entertainment captivates the historic downtown.
"We need your help!" states Kathleen Herzog, Main Street Director. "If you are willing to donate a tree to our historic downtown, please give Main Street a call. In addition to acknowledging your kind gift during the tree lighting, Santa promises to make all your wishes come true!" The tree will be on display throughout the holiday season beginning the night of the tree lighting.
Do you have a tree:
If you want to donate the tree that will be used as the Rutherford County Christmas Tree in front of the courthouse, call 895-1887. Main Street will arrange a time to cut the tree down and then place it on the square.
Main Street: Murfreesboro/Rutherford County is committed to maintaining, enhancing and promoting the historic downtown as the heart of the community.
