Community helped create twinkle and cheer on Main Street

SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Every year the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce decorates the lamp posts on Main Street in downtown Springfield with banners and white lights to bring twinkle and cheer to the neighborhood during the winter months. This tradition creates an inviting avenue for visitors passing through our lovely town, and brings about a sense of warmth and community for all who live here.

Many of the lights we used last year were worn out or broken, so we asked the community for help with replacing them. The outpouring of enthusiasm and financial support has been overwhelming. We are so grateful and moved by everyone’s generosity. Thanks to our Chamber Vice President Jeff Perkins and Second Vice President Dan Harrington for hanging the banners and doing such a beautiful job of putting up the lights. A special thank you goes out to HB Energy Solutions for their enormous assistance with this project, and a huge shout out to Chamber board member Brian Hernon and his team for their amazing efforts setting up Santa’s house and doing the legwork for the tree lighting ceremony. We also appreciate Jeff Graham of Graham & Graham PC for donating the lovely community tree. The downtown avenue is looking festive and bright, and Chamber wants to express utmost gratitude to the following organizations and individuals who helped to Light the Poles this holiday season:


With community effort, Main Street now looks festive for the winter months. Photo provided
