Buffalo, NY - Mayor Byron W. Brown today thanked McKinley H.S. Career and Technical Education students for trimming the Christmas tree in the lobby of Buffalo City Hall.

 McKinley H.S. horticulture teacher Dan Robillard and nine of his students decorated the tree on Tuesday, November 30, continuing what’s become a tradition in bringing holiday cheer to the lobby for City Hall employees and visitors to enjoy.

 “Once again, Mr. Robillard and his students have done a beautiful job trimming the tree. This great partnership has allowed us to showcase the wonderful talents of our young people to all those who pass through the City Hall lobby during the Christmas season.

 This year’s tree features red bows, red flowers and sprigs of holly, accented by snowy strands of white.
