Each year Soroptimist International of Patterson, along with the City of Patterson and Patterson Chamber of Commerce, kicks off the Holiday season with a tree decorating contest in South Park. This is followed by a tree-lighting ceremony and Patterson’s annual Holiday parade in Historic downtown. All residents, local organizations and businesses are encouraged to join in on the fun, by decorating a tree. The cost is $30 and forms are available at US Bank. Payments in cash or checks (payable to Soroptimist International of Patterson) along with the form can be submitted to Veronica Cash at US Bank. Please refer to the form for additional information.
