Thanks to the many who made holidays bright in Port

To the editor:

The holidays in Newburyport are always magical and welcomed by so many people from the greater Newburyport area. We are fortunate to live and work in a city that embraces the many holiday traditions and the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce and Industry is proud to be the facilitator with so many other partners to bring a smile and a twinkle in the eye of children old and young alike. From the day the Christmas tree is put up in Market Square to the annual Santa Parade, Invitation Nights and Santa’s Workshop, there are so many who are involved and need to be thanked.

The Chamber would like to publicly thank so many individuals that volunteered their time in one way or another to welcome and embrace the holiday season in Newburyport.
