Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Congressman Richard E. Neal joined with Amanda Pham, Executive Director for the Springfield Parking Authority, for a special Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony at Springfield Union Station on Friday, November 17th. Along with lighting the tree Mayor Sarno and other organizations decorated holiday ornaments to hang on the tree. Students from Central High School sang some holiday songs to welcome in the holiday season.

The tree also features a model train that was fabricated by Amherst Rail Society and travels around the tree.

Mayor Sarno stated, “I want to thank SRA Director Amanda Pham and her dedicated SRA team for creating such a beautiful and wonderful tree lighting event to kickoff the busy holiday travel season in our beautiful and historic Springfield Union Station.  The halls of Union Station filled with joy from the musical singing talents of our wonderful Central High School student choir.  On behalf of the SRA and the City of Springfield, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  Happy and healthy holidays, and safe travels during this holiday season.  God Bless.”
