Children from Overtown were all smiles during the annual tree lighting ceremony held last Thursday, Dec. 8 on NW 10th Street. The event was sponsored by the Southeast Overtown/Park West CRA. Participants enjoyed refreshments and sang Christmas carols. CRA Board Chair and City Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones said the lights on the tree should remind us of the children of Overtown who have been shot and killed. Miami Times photo/Levi Matthews.
