Mahtomedi’s Annual Tree of Light Event Returns

Mahtomedi tree lights up for a good cause.

The Tree of Light and Remembrance event in Mahtomedi Triangle Park, now in its 13th year, does double-duty during the holiday season. Those wishing to offer a memorial or honor a loved one may purchase a light for the tree from the Mahtomedi Area Food Shelf; the names of those being remembered will be read at a special lighting ceremony. The proceeds help to fund the charity during its busiest time; last year, with 552 lights sold, the event raised $7,300.
Free to attend, $10 for a light. 6:30 p.m. Mahtomedi Triangle Park, Stillwater Road and Mahtomedi Avenue; 651.395.5352.
