Winter scene at MU

Tree-lighting ceremony is Nov. 20 at Manchester University

Manchester University will host its annual tree-lighting ceremony on Wednesday, Nov. 20 in front of Petersime Chapel.

The Manchester Junior High Choir will perform seasonal selections and carols at 6 p.m., with the lighting at 6:25 p.m.

Santa Claus arrives at 6:30 p.m. 

There will be refreshments and photos with Santa inside Funderburg Library.

This celebration is free and open to the public.

“Those who are familiar with the University Mall know that there is no large evergreen in front of Petersime,” said Alexis Young, chair of the planning committee and senior director of auxiliary services. “We are improvising and moving the ceremony because our traditional tree on East Street had a rough year with all of the construction for the Chinworth Center.”
