David Martin Presents a

Check for Tree Lights to Mayor Euille on February 22


David Martin proudly presented a $6,750 check to the Mayor at the City Council Public Hearing  on February 22 matching the amount necessary to keep  the trees lights on along  King Street through June. 


"I am so pleased that the business community and others rallied together to raise  funds to keep the trees lit.  Coming from Metro or the river, King Street will brightly shine letting visitors and shoppers know that we are open for business and Alexandria is the fun place to be," commented Council Woman Del Pepper who strongly supported this initiative.


Last year, (do we know the date?) City Council set aside $6,750 to cover one-half of the costs of lighting through June.  The other half would have to be raised by early March, 2014.   This challenge was successfully accomplished under the leadership of  David.  The funds have been deposited with the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce Foundation (is this the correct name?) and the tree lights will be kept on through June, 2014.
