Shelter Island Christmas tree and  Menorah to be lit

Holiday lights will brighten the Island’s dark December skies with two annual events slated in the coming weeks. On Tuesday, Dec. 5, the Shelter Island Chamber of Commerce’s Christmas tree will be lit at 5 p.m. in front of the Shelter Island Police Headquarters, along with music and caroling.

Hot chocolate and homemade cookies will be served afterward at the Community Center and children can have photos taken with Santa Claus.
