The reenergized Hesperia Area Chamber of Commerce recently announced it will be co-hosting a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, December 1 at 6:30 pm. The festive holiday event will be held in the heart of the Village at Webster Park, on the corner of M-20 and M-120. The Hesperia Beautification Committee and Hesperia Area Fire Department are joining forces with HACC to make this event possible for the community.
“We are excited to add this event to the calendar,” said Scott Rumsey, the Chamber President. “We hope to bring more family friendly events like this to our community in 2018”.
The organization saw a complete change in leadership to begin 2017, and hit the ground running. The first order of business was to continue to make the annual July 4th Family Fun Fest a success. HACC started the summer by hosting a Business After Hours event for area businesses. Currently, a website redesign is underway, preparing for Small Business Saturday, and planning various events for Christmas are just a few of the ways HACC is becoming more involved within the community. A membership drive will be taking place, in hopes to increase business membership while promoting Hesperia and the surrounding businesses in Newaygo and Oceana Counties.
Santa and Mrs. Claus are scheduled to make an appearance as Webster Park is illuminated. Horse drawn carriage rides, music, hot cocoa and cookies are also included in this free community event. Those who wish to attend the event are encouraged visit the event page on the Hesperia Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook page.
