ASU To Host Family Friendly Activities During Next Week's Christmas Tree Lighting


SAN ANGELO, TX –– Next week Angelo State University will host its annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in front of the ASU Mayer Museum.

Starting at 5:00 p.m., students and members of the community are invited to stop by and enjoy the Holiday Pops Concert by the ASU Symphony Orchestra and Chorale, check out the synthetic ice-skating rink, and take a turn on the inflatable bounce houses.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to decorate Christmas ornaments, greeting cards, and cookies.

The 26-foot-tree will be lit up at sundown and will remain the entire holiday season.

In addition to the holiday fun,  the ASU Ram Pantry will also be accepting donations of non-perishable food items and toiletries. These items will then be provided to ASU students in need at no cost.

Cart shuttle services will be provided to the event from the Mayer Administration Building and Houston Harte University Center parking lots. Signage and volunteers will also be available to help guide visitors.

To ensure pedestrian safety, a one-block section of Johnson Street between W. Avenue N and Vanderventer Avenue will be blocked off.

The Christmas Tree Lighting is also taking place on the same day as ASU's participation in the annual "Giving Tuesday" global fundraising movement. 

Throughout the day on Nov. 30, ASU will be accepting online donations that will go toward the Ram Family Student Scholarship, and donations will also be accepted in person at the Tree Lighting Ceremony.

This year's goal is to reach at least 300 donations to the Ram Family Student Scholarship that is otherwise funded primarily by ASU students. 

The ASU Foundation has also pledged to match the first $5,000 in total donations.
