NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa. –
Surrounded by Defense Logistics Agency Distribution headquarters personnel, Navy Rear Adml. Kevin Jones, commanding officer, DLA Distribution, provided the five second count down before the tree lighting, held in the lobby of the headquarters building Monday, Dec. 9.
The tree lighting event sparked the beginning of activities planned for Distribution’s “Holiday Spirit Week” taking place Dec. 9 through 13.
Other festivities planned for the week included a visit from a few of Santa’s special elves and an “ugly sweater contest.”
During the tree lighting ceremony, Jones wished everyone a wonderful holiday season, reminded them to be safe in all they do, and thanked them for their hard work in support to the warfighter.
Participants then sang holiday carols and enjoyed cookies and punch.
