 Our Color Guard will participate in the Fairview Tree Lighting event on Thursday, November 29th at Fairview City Hall.
 We will present the Colors at the beginning of the program.
The program will start at 6:30 pm. Following the flag presentation and national anthem their will be an invocation and then the town manager will welcome everyone and introduce the Mayor who will talk briefly and light the tree. (the Post will be recognized during the welcome)

There will be children's choirs and dance groups performing as well as crafts, a bounce house, cookies, hot chocolate and Mrs. Clause and a couple of friends.
The event will end at 8:30 pm.
We can park in the Town Hall parking lot or in the Fairview Town Center parking lots. We will meet at the front doors on the West side of city hall at 6:00 pm. This will give us time to see the layout and get set up. I need to know how many of you will be able to attend. If you have any questions call me on my cell 972-529-8504.
