Star Trees turn 70; lighting ceremony set for Dec. 3

 

2009 Star Trees Lighting Ceremony 

Willamette's Star Trees, still such distinguishing features of campus, turn 70 years old this year. And they're as big (and bright) as ever.

This year's lighting ceremony takes place Saturday, Dec. 3. All the traditional events return this year, and the ceremony will once again include a clothing drive -- so you might consider a donation, too.
