Salem Main Streets and the City of Salem are pleased to announce the completed installation of our 2020 Holiday Tree at Lappin Park. While we were not able to gather to light the tree together this year, the Tree remains a seasonal cornerstone of our downtown and reflects the strength of our community.
The tree this year has been generously donated by The O’Brien Family, delivered by Iron Tree Service and Spencer Contracting, and decorated by Gigi Gill and the City of Salem tree department, with a programmable LED tree topper constructed by Joey Nicotera of Retonica. The tree was sponsored by Gigi Gill, Sis Williams/Dick Simard Barbershop, Morning Glory B&B, John Keenan & Kara McLaughlin, Gulu Gulu Cafe, Flying Saucer Pizza Company, Gypsy Moon, Harrison’s Comics, Vampfangs, and Brian Kennedy. The tree topper is possible through the Salem Winterlude initiative, a new collaboration between Salem Main Streets and Creative Collective, supported through Bench Consulting’s “Winter Places” program with funding from the Barr Foundation.
