‘Tis The Season In Broad Channel
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Broad Channel.
Around November 21, the light garlands were spread across Cross Bay Blvd, lighting up the neighborhood even more as passersby drive through. This effort was spearheaded by the Wagner family, which each year holds a big 50/50 raffle to raise funds for the lights. Winners were announced on November 23.
In another effort, Lisena Landscaping has donated six Christmas trees and placed them along the malls on Cross Bay Blvd. on November 30. Freddy Lisena and his team donated the trees and secured them on platforms around 19th, 16th, 13th, 10th, 7th, and 4th Roads. Lilly O’Sullivan also led a 50/50 raffle on behalf of the Broad Channel Civic Association to help cover some of the costs of the trees and the lights that are now decorating them, thanks to the help of Broad Channel residents. All Broad Channel residents are welcome to place ornaments on the trees throughout the holiday season.
More festive fun will be taking place in Broad Channel, including the annual Broad Channel Athletic Club’s tree lighting this Sunday, December 11 at 5 p.m. at the BCAC (125 Cross Bay Blvd.)
