Lights On and the Gift of Service
Last night the City held the fifth annual “Lights On!” celebration at the Orem City Center. I was pleased to join members of our community as we listened to performances by the Cascade Elementary Children’s Choir and sang Christmas carols together. We also heard a performance by Miss Orem and Miss Orem Teen and met mascots from UVU, the Orem Owlz, and the SCERA Theatre. As part of the celebration, children in our community pledged to complete an act of service for someone in need. Then two children were selected to officially flip the switch to turn on the Christmas lights on the City Center grounds. It was great to see their faces light up with excitement as the lights turned on. It is always a pleasure to rub shoulders with members of our community. Thank you to those who dedicated their time and energy to make sure this event was a success. I hope that all of us in Orem, regardless of age, will feel the spirit of giving and look for opportunities to serve during this holiday season.
