SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – About 60 people stood around a decorated pine tree in the center of Dayton Village Sunday evening for the 13th annual Holiday Tree lighting sponsored by the Dayton Village Citizens Coalition.

Deputy Mayor Chris Killmurray presided over the festivities along with both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts as well as a choir to help lead the crowd singing Christmas carols.

Following the lighting, attendees enjoyed cookies and hot chocolate and cider in the Presbyterian Church parish hall.

According to the group’s website, the Dayton Village Citizens' Coalition is a nonprofit organization located in Dayton, New Jersey.

It strives to enhance the quality of life in the village by preserving our history, and educating the public about its history and gardening, particularly traditional gardening.

The group also works to make the area more pedestrian friendly through identifying walkways and bike paths as well as putting together information on the flora and fauna along South Brunswick trails, according to the site.
