Lighting the peace tree

November 7, 5:30 PM

​Peace and goodwill in our world starts within each individual, each family and each community. On this day, the Chester/Lake Almanor community expresses  a collective desire for peace and goodwill among ourselves,. Each year we light  this tree together, at the beginning of our holiday season and on the weekend that our nation celebrates the service and sacrifice of our brothers and sisters for our national safety and security. In this way we put forth our intention for peace.  We honor their service to us by initiating a season of peace, hope, service and goodwill toward each other, those in our families, our neighborhoods and our community.
