The Greater Gladstone Civic Association (GGCA) hosts several events each year, including a contingent in the Lansdowne Fourth of July parade, followed by a neighborhood picnic on the Island at Walsh and DeForest Roads; a fall or Halloween activity; and a holiday tree lighting. In addition, the Mansfield Brass Quintent holds an annual Caroling Under the Streetlights one weekend night before Christmas and the Santa mailbox returns each December for mailing all important letters to the North Pole.

Holiday Tree Decorating Help

Holiday Tree Decorating Help

The holidays are fast approaching, and we’d love to have you volunteer to help with the decorations on The Island (located at the intersection of DeForest and Walsh Roads) and on Madison Rd. As of now, the schedule for the holiday decorating is as follows:

Saturday, November 20, 10 am. Set up the decorations on the Island (build Santa’s house, string lights, put up other decorations). The rain date is Sunday, November 21 at 10 am

The more volunteers we have, the less time it will take to decorate!

On Saturday, December 4, from 4:00 – 5:00 pm join us for the Tree lighting ceremony! Meet Santa, have hot drinks and snacks, and watch the tree alight at 5:00 pm. Yearly donations for the new lights and decorations will be collected at this time.
