Led by the Salvation Army Philadelphia Citadel Brass Ensemble, traditional carols were sung, and all ages enjoyed the chance for fellowship in the clear, cool weather. LTSP President the Rev. Dr. Philip Krey, East Mt Airy Neighbors President Dan Muroff, and Pennsylvania Senator LeAnna Washington offered greetings, and Sen. Washington flicked the switch to light the tree at the plaza's corner. Cookies provided by the Trolley Car Diner and warm cider helped warm the crowd. Toys for the Salvation Army's Toy Drive, especially needed in these difficult economic times, were collected from community members.
