Brighten Up St. Johns

Lights Update … Looking for 2018 Sponsor

Thank you St. Johns! Despite a late start, the community support for the Brighten Up St. Johns campaign was amazing.

We were able to light 50 trees, including 5 new trees along Burlington Avenue, making our downtown business district inviting and safe even on dark winter nights.
