Tis' the Season
Local Choir Entertains at Zion's Bank Lights On Ceremony
Zions Bank continued its long-held tradition, inviting elementary students from throughout the state to decorate a Christmas tree with homemade ornaments in the lobby of each Zions Bank branch. The bank provided the lighted tree and students contributed ornaments they made themselves. In return for the colorful decorations, bank branches made monetary contributions to each participating school. This year, Huntington Elementary School students decorated a tree inside Zions Bank's Huntington office on Dec. 4. At 4:30 p.m., students, teachers, parents and Zions Bank employees gathered in the lobby for the "Lights On" ceremony. Zions Bank presented a contribution of 35 cents per ornament to the school, and participants sang Christmas carols, met Santa and had refreshments. The tree will be on display in the lobby through the holidays."We have been hosting 'Lights On' for nearly 16 years now," said Ed Christianson, manager at Zions Bank Huntington and Castle Dale offices. "It's always been a great opportunity to bring school children and their parents together in celebration of the holiday spirit." Ferron Elementary students also made decorations for display on the tree in the Castle Dale branch of the bank which the student council decorated.
