Borough Christmas Tree
The Mount Carmel Lions Club continues their tradition of supplying and setting up the borough's Christmas tree at the intersection of Oak Street and the Avenue, in front of the old Borough Hall (and Public Library), now owned by Melanie Williams and called "The Shop at Oak and Avenue".
The Lions Club would especially like to thank Melanie for once again allowing us to use the property, Borough Manager Joe Bass, Lions Warren Altomare of Family Medical, Inc. & Frank Zaleski for supplying the lights, and Bob Miller for donating this year's tree.
Members of the committee are (from left) Lions Frank Zaleski, Jerry Malinowski, Mike Romance, Jeff Kanezo, Warren Altomare, Perino Bevivino, Tony Candelora, and Mayor J. Kevin Jones.
Here's a photo showing where the club set up the tree on Third & Oak Sts. back in the 40s and 50s.
Santa Claus Parade
The Mount Carmel Lions Club co-sponsors Mount Carmel's annual Santa Claus Parade with the Mount Carmel Retail Merchants. The parade is held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving and begins at 11:00 AM.
Here are some pictures of the 2008 parade.
