The North Salem Improvement Society is doing its part to bring a little more holiday spirit to town residents through a holiday tree display on Titicus Road. Each year, the Improvement Society invites community organizations to decorate a Christmas tree with ornaments and trimmings representative of each group’s mission.

Over the weekend, volunteers from several local groups, including the Girl Scouts and the North Salem Historical Society, came out to the site of the town tree (Titicus Road, east of Keeler Lane and Baxter Road) to adorn their decorative trees.

 The Improvement Society will host its annual Christmas Eve event on Friday, December 24 beginning at 6:00 p.m. All residents, including members of the North Salem Central School District, are invited to join for caroling, a bonfire, hot cider and cocoa, cookies and Santa!

"We want to share a big thank you to the police, highway and fire departments  and all the community organizations who are participating!" said Cynthia Curtis, co-president of the North Salem Improvement Society.

Residents are encouraged to drive by to view the trees any evening through January 2nd.
