Goleta’s Community Tree Lighting Event Set for Friday

Free public gathering at GVCC will include entertainment, refreshments, and crafts for kids

The Goleta Valley Community Center, 5679 Hollister Ave., will host the city’s 21st annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony this Friday, Dec. 10.

The public is invited to the free event. Entertainment will begin at 5:30 p.m., closely followed by the tree lighting.

Rob Locke, general manager of the Goleta Valley Community Center, said there will be live entertainment throughout the evening.

“We are excited to have various performers, including the South Coast Karate, Cruz Dance & Entertainment, as well as our own GVCC School of Ballet,” he said. “Each of these groups will bring something festive for the evening’s event.”

This year, the GVCC also will have cookie decorating and refreshments, Christmas crafts for kids, and an opportunity to win a fresh Christmas tree.

Corporate support has been provided by the Fairview McDonald’s and the Goleta Home Depot. For more information, contact Dorothy Turner at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or 805.967.1237.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
