With Support from a Grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council
Saturday December 4, 2021 3 pm to 7 pm
A word of thanks….. The Topsfield Holiday on the Green Committee wishes to thank the many volunteers, local businesses and Town employees whose coordinated effort resulted in a wonderful night of festivities on December 4. Although covid restrictions did alter some events such as limiting the number of participating artisans, many of our traditional events such as the Maryellen McGee award for outstanding volunteerism in our community, the lighting of the Memory Tree (particularly the loss of loved ones during this pandemic), the arrival of Santa, the bonfire, the Masco Chorale Group and the Proctor School Band as well as Santa’s Workshop, and the Holiday Walk among local businesses made the night so wonderful. A special thanks to our Town Administrator Kevin Harutunian and the many town employees that allowed this event to occur from the Parks and Recreation Department to Public Works, the Health Department, and the Council on Aging. In addition, our Police Department and Fire Department were instrumental in coordinating foot traffic and street closures to implementing Santa’s arrival, the tree lighting ceremony, a bonfire and so much more. Finally, a special thanks to our volunteers from the Chair of this event, Darcy Fulton to the cotton candy ladies, the Masco student elves, Santa workshop helpers and organizers of the Holiday Walk. The Memory Tree collected over $400 and a list of donors is on this website, posted on the town website and at the library. This event was supported by a generous grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Thank you to the committee and other community members including: Chairwoman Darcy Fulton, Tom Capono, Toby Dechene, Linda & Matt Gilligan, Jessica Watkins, Christina Clawson, Kathleen Barbarisi, Ellie Losee, Kathleen Hunt, Ashley Elwell, Jane Michalek, Jen Collins-Brown, Neil Hovey, Topsfield Fire, Topsfield Police, Topsfield DPW, Topsfield Library, Town Administrator Kevin Harutunian, and the businesses, town government workers, and people of Topsfield.
