CHATHAM,  NJ - Chatham turned out on Main Street for the third annual tree lighting held at the Library of the Chathams on Saturday night.

Chatham music teachers Veronica Shaw and Tracy Roskam led the third graders in two songs, "Giddyup" and "Santa Uses Zebras Now" before Santa made his entrance from inside the library and then counted down to the tree lighting.

There were 142 students who sang and, according to Shaw, they came to school early to practice for the event.
