Otter Lake brings back tree lighting ceremony

Otter Lake held their first tree lighting ceremony and Community Christmas Celebration Saturday evening, drawing in more families than they even hoped for. Alexis Paquette shows off the gingerbread home she made at the R.A. Hall during the festivities.
The event featured carolling, sleigh rides, gingerbread house building, raffles and tons more. Marie Lafleur was the lucky winner of the raffle basket, containing all sorts of gift certificates and goodies inside.

A welcome to the Christmas season in Otter Lake saw a huge variety of activities take place all over town, as locals of all ages enjoyed sleigh rides, decorated their homes and a whole lot more, ensuring the municipality stays on Santa’s nice list.
Organized by the town’s recreation association, the Saturday evening Community Christmas Celebration turned out to be a huge success, even beyond the R.A.’s expectations.
“For our first time, we weren’t expecting such a big crowd,” said Desiree Tremblay, a member of the Otter Lake R.A.
The celebrations kicked off with a tree lighting ceremony at Memorial Park, where around 70 people came together. Complete with the choir from The Church of St. Charles Borromeo, candles were distributed as the crowd welcomed the coming of the holiday season.
