The Pembroke Tree Lighting Committee was proud to offer the 2nd Annual Snowman on the Green Decorating Contest! The snowmen were sold to individuals and/or companies to decorate. They were then installed on the Town Green prior to the Tree Lighting and will remain up until the end of December. Please remember if the stake is returned or, so is your deposit of $5! All proceeds go the the Tree Lighting Committee. Check out the fine snowmen decorated this year!!
