By Lisa Van De Hey Publisher/Editor The Gridley Area Chamber of Commerce tried something new this year, combining the annual Tree Lighting at Or- chard Hospital with the Pa- rade of Lights in one night and judging by the record crowds at both events, this will continue for years to come. The beautiful voice of "Elsa" from Frozen brought smiles to everyone at the tree lighting as she sang Let It Go and the Grineh was a big suc- cess as he posed for pictures with the kids. Once the beautiful tree was lit by children of the Gridley- Biggs Police Department and Butte County Sheriff's De- partment it was time for the hayride with caroling towards downtown. Many, many thanks to Daryl Dye and the Gridley Electric crew for once again providing the beautiful lights complete with a big star on top. Our Downtown is beauti- fully lit up and added so much to the ambiance as people trav- eled from one vendor to anoth- er enjoying hot chocolate, pop- corn, fudge and even hot dogs for dinner. Ryan. King and friends played music for the first hour as the vendors got set up and began selling their items fol- ORCHARD HOSPITAL TREE LIGHTING - Many thanks to Orchard Hospitaffor once again hosting the Chamber of Commerce Tree Lighting and furnishing refreshments for such a big crowd as they enjoyed entertainment before the lighting of the tree.
