East Newark Rings In The Holidays With Annual Tree Lighting

Photo Credits:  Jonathan Fernandes

It may have come a day late due to inclement weather, but that didn’t stop East Newark residents from coming out on a sunny, Sunday afternoon, to light the municipal Christmas tree.  Santa was on hand to take photos with residents and elected officials, and hot chocolate and other refreshments were served.  It was a wonderful way for the borough to ring in the holiday season.

              Among those in attendance were Mayor Dina Grilo, Chief Anthony Monteiro and the entire Police Department, Chief and Council member Kenneth Graham, Councilwoman Jessica Diaz and the East Newark Volunteer Fire Department.
