Grotto Pizza’s Parade of Trees


Each year, Grotto Pizza at Harvey’s Lake holds an event for local businesses to sponsor a charity of their choice by decorating a tree that and is kept up until the first week of January.

Borton-Lawson employees and their families decorated the tree last night.

Visitors can “vote” for the best-decorated tree, or their favorite charity, by making a monetary donation at Grotto Pizza.
