SILER CITY - Great music by Jordan-Matthews High School's band, a visit by Santa Claus, and lighting of the Christmas tree all added to the festivities Dec. 7 as Central Carolina Community College hosted its Christmas Tree Lighting celebration for the Chatham County community at the CCCC Siler City Center.
The Christmas Tree Lighting was planned and coordinated by the CCCC Foundation and college volunteers.
George Lucier, a member of the CCCC Board of Trustees, read the holiday classic, "'Twas the Night Before Christmas."
"This is a great way for the college to start the season," said CCCC President T.E. Marchant.
