Bring Christmas to Rockport: Donate a Tree!

Contact: Chuck Osmond, Rockport DPW, 978-546-3525

The Rockport Department of Public Works is once again in the process of converting downtown parking meter posts into holiday tree stands, as Rockport makes ready for its annual Christmas in Rockport celebration.  The DPW is also working to find the perfect evergreen tree to place in Dock Square, and is inviting any Rockport homeowner with a suitable tree (approximately 35 feet in height) to contact the DPW office at 978-546-3525.  Representatives of the DPW will select the most suitable tree from among those offered, then work with the property owner to remove the tree and prepare it for its new home in Dock Square celebrating Christmas in Rockport 2011.  This year’s annual Tree Lighting Ceremony will take place on Saturday, December 3, beginning at approximately 4:00 pm.
