PRLog - Dec. 4, 2012 - POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Staatsburg, N.Y. (Dec. 4, 2012) – Anderson Center for Autism will be holding their annual tree lighting ceremony Wednesday, December 5th, located at 4885 Route 9, Staatsburg, NY.

Beginning at 6:30 p.m., Santa will ride through the front gates and travel throughout the picturesque Anderson campus on a fire truck courtesy of the local Fire Department. Fear not – jolly, old St. Nick never arrives empty handed! A bustling bag filled with candy canes will be handed out to all Anderson students in true holiday spirit.

Santa, along with all Anderson students and staff will be invited to partake in the decorating of the Anderson tree. Scott Case of Bilmar Nurseries in Pleasant Valley was kind enough to donate a live evergreen tree. Edward Villegas Landscaping generously provided the manpower to plant the impressive 16-foot tall evergreen in the center lawn of campus where the decorating will take place.

Afterward, and cozy inside, students will be treated to hot cocoa and cookies.

Throughout the year, Anderson students, staff, families and community members persevere through a number of intense struggles and setbacks. It is an all-too-familiar and heartbreaking story for millions of families across the nation. And, with autism recognized as the fastest growing disability in America today, it is an issue that truly affects us all.

Despite the hardships and heartache, Anderson continues to strive to ensure a brighter future for every individual living on the autism spectrum. The annual tree lighting ceremony is a special moment for all involved with Anderson; to celebrate not only the holidays, but one another – their success, their strength and most of all, their unwavering commitment in reaching every one of Anderson’s goals.
