Xmas Tree Fire Event - A photo essay.
A good burn for a good cause
Good evening Norwich,
There were several advertisements in the Norwich Listserv promoting a Xmas tree fire event and bake sale with hot chocolate. All of this was for a good cause as you will see in this photo essay. Here is that announcement from Emma Cottage.

Bring your Christmas Tree to the Norwich Green on Saturday, Jan 21st between 5:00 and 7:00 pm.
There will be hot chocolate to enjoy while watching your Christmas tree crackle on the fire, and light up the night sky!

Constant maintenance to promote safety
The event was held to help raise funds for the Marion Cross 6th-grade celebration and $15 was the (suggested donation). There were approximately 30 trees and around 60 people attending over the 2 hours. There were also several wonderful volunteers who started the fires, kept things safe for all to enjoy and when it was all over put the fire out and cleaned up the area as if it never happened. They even swept up the ashes.
