The Downtown Lodi Business Partnership has the pleasure of decorating downtown for the holidays every season, and was blessed even more this year with the overwhelming contributions from the business community.
On Monday, November 23rd, the DLBP had a 30-foot Christmas tree trucked in from Snowy Peaks Christmas Tree Farm located out of Forrest Hill. The tree was planted in 1979 and was hand picked earlier this year for Lodi.
Diede Construction was extremely instrumental in the set-up and decorating of the tree. The crew did everything from installing the tree at the post office plaza using a crane donated by United Rentals and came back on Wednesday to install lights and put up ornaments using a bucket lift donated by Sun State Equipment Rentals.
The decorations and supplies were sponsored by Bethel Church and were purchased at Orchard Supply Hardware who was very generous with their pricing. Dave and Pamela Payne of D.L. Payne, Inc. purchased over 225 strands of white lights to string the trunks of the trees that line School Street.
Boy Scout Troop 291 assembled and installed the holiday swags with pine cones and bows on the light poles and the downtown merchants have brilliantly decorated and lit their windows for the community to enjoy.
Downtown Lodi looks magical this holiday season and the Downtown Lodi Business Partnership thanks all who have been so thoughtful and giving!
