2014 Christmas Lighting and Open House



Remember when Essex had a large crowd for the Christmas Tree Lighting?

We are going to revive that tradition and we would like to include you in that group this year. You will be sure to enjoy the Orems United Methodist Choir, refreshment and décor. The Heritage Society of Essex and Middle River membership invites you to share the evening with us.

Santa will give each child a handmade tree ornament, and can have their picture taken outside in the sled with Santa Claus.

Join us on Saturday, December 6th beginning at 6:00 p.m.
