Fort Bend County Annual Christmas Tree Lighting
FORT BEND COUNTY, TX – The annual Christmas Tree Lighting at the Fort Bend County Historic Courthouse took place December 6, 2016 immediately following Commissioners Court. Members of the Lamar Consolidated High School Varsity Choir sang Christmas carols in the rotunda to a group of county employees and attendees of Commissioners Court. Employees participated in an annual ornament design event in which each department was asked to submit an ornament that represented their department and the work they do for the citizens of Fort Bend County. Along with the admired tree in the Historic Courthouse rotunda, a special tree in the Mamie George Community Room holds all of these handmade ornaments.
County Judge Bob Hebert said, "I really enjoy the lighting ceremony. Seeing the big tree come alive with lights in the courthouse rotunda, while the students sing, really fuels my Christmas spirit."
