Christmas Tree Decoration:

The Borough of Moosic Christmas tree is tall, really tall in fact. As such, it needs a lot of decorations to fill its many branches.  As in past years, the Borough is turning to the Elves from Itsy’s Bitsy bookworm daycare to make those decorations and hang them on the tree at the Community Tree Decorating event.  They spent time and energy that truly reflected the spirit of the Holidays. Thank you for all you have done to make our Christmas a little brighter.
