This letter is sent in clarification of an article in the Jan. 1, 2016, edition regarding the 2015 Downtown Tree Lighting.
The Downtown Renton Tree Lighting and Arrival of Santa has been hosted by Piazza Renton for more than 15 years. Piazza Renton volunteers take great pride in presenting this annual Downtown Renton holiday event to the people of our City.
The Dec. 5 event was the result of the combined efforts two volunteer groups: Piazza Renton and the Downtown Partnership. In clarification of the statement in her column that the event was “hosted” Carolyn Ossorio, we want to relay that Carolyn served as a master of ceremonies for a portion of the program. She was not the host, in the traditional sense, for the evening. The true hosts of the event were the volunteers of Piazza Renton and the Downtown Partnership.
Piazza Renton wants to thank the many volunteers who worked to make the evening festive, fun and a great success. Thank you also, Renton Reporter, for your continuing support of Piazza Renton, the Downtown Partnership and the many other volunteer organizations that work long and hard to make Renton a great place to live, work and play!
President, Piazza Renton
