LYNDONVILLE – The village will continue its popular Christmas display at Veterans Park and also has added a North Pole Post for people to send letters to Santa. The Post is located inside the Yates Community Library.

Last year there were 79 trees decorated by community members. That is the most since Lyndonville started the tradition in 2013, with 26 trees in that first year.

Residents have until Nov. 18 to apply to decorate a tree. A $30 fee covers the cost of the tree, materials for the sign, lead cords, replacement cords and adapters as needed. Participants need to provide lights and decorations.

The trees will be lighted up for the first time on Dec. 4 by Santa as part of a Christmas in Lyndonville celebration. The trees will be out until about Jan. 1.
