Martinsburg Community Betterment held its annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony event this past Sunday in Martinsburg. The event also included lanterns being lit that flew through the air in memory of loved ones who have past on through the years. A nativity was also on display at the event.
A special service was held inside the Martinsburg Community Center. Ornaments were put on a tree as a memorial to loved ones. Different area residents stood up and mentioned several names and some spoke more specifically about some of those who have passed. Refreshments were served after the event.
