The George Bush Presidential Library Center’s Community Christmas — modeled after the tree lighting ceremony that takes place annually on the White House grounds – is planned for Thursday, December 3, at 7pm and will include musical entertainment, a celebrity guest tree lighter and a public reception.
Throughout the month, people are encouraged to take their family pictures in front of the beautifully decorated and lit tree.
Local business owners are invited to come early and join the Bryan/College Station Chamber of Commerce’s Business After Hours from 5:30-7pm in the rotunda. This is an excellent networking opportunity and chance to find out how the chamber can help you and your business.
Texas A&M University and Blinn College students with valid identification will receive free admission to the library and all exhibits.
