DOBBINS HEIGHTS — With Christmas carols before and after, town leaders lit the tree outside the town hall Wednesday evening.

Mayor Antonio Blue welcomed the crowd of residents who came out to the town’s annual ceremony, reminding them that Christ is the “reason for the season.”
A small choir sang a rendition of “Silent Night” before the countdown to the tree lighting, with outgoing Councilwoman Barbara Young having the honor of plugging in the cord.
As the star atop the tree flashed in the night sky, the crowd sang “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” before heading inside for refreshments, where singers from St. Mary’s Holiness Church sang a soulful rendition of “O Come All Ye Faithful.”
The town is also hosting its annual sleigh ride at the Dobbins Heights Community Center from 3-5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 21. The following day, attendees of the jazz event are asked to bring a toy worth at least $10 in lieu of the usual $10 admission fee.
