The various storm systems that hit the Bay Area took a break Friday night, allowing the residents that showed up a chance to sing and watch as the Roosevelt Tree was lit.
The Campbell Tree Lighting Ceremony went off without a hitch Nov. 30. It attracted dozens of brave community members who, along with students from the Delphi Academy, sang Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and watched as the 55-foot, nearly 100-year-old redwood tree on the corner of Campbell Avenue and Winchester Boulevard was lit up in the dark sky.
The tree lighting has a rich history in the Orchard City, spanning back more than 20 years. The lighting ceremony was originally held in front of the Campbell Community Center, moved to the redwood tree in front of Campbell City Hall about 10 years ago, then back to its original location in 2012.
Also held that night was the Campbell Community Center's 25th Anniversary Celebration and the unveiling of Rescue 25.
