The City of Socorro’s Celebration of Lights was a hit!

Residents from all over the community helped light the City of Socorro Tree. It was cold and beautiful as City Leaders and the Ernesto Serna School Choir gathered outside City Hall. Dozens of families including City Representatives and members from the Mendoza, Chavez and Gonzales families just to name a few placed their family ornaments on the City tree. It’s a great time of the year to be in the City of Socorro.
