Neither snow nor rain nor gloom of night could keep Harborfields High School’s musicians from their appointed rounds on Dec. 1. Both Greenlawn and Centerport held their annual tree lighting ceremonies on that snowy Sunday, bringing community members together to celebrate the start of the holiday season.  

The Harborfields High School Jazz Band, under the direction of Daniel Bilawsky, kicked off the festivities in the afternoon at the Greenlawn Public Library; and later that night more than 30 vocalists gathered at the Centerport Firehouse to lead the crowds in caroling. “The weather was certainly frightful, but the music and atmosphere at these events was delightful,” Mr. Bilawsky said.
