Passersby will most certainly notice a festive 10-foot Christmas tree as they drive by Amore Restaurant on State Route 37 East in Sherman this holiday season. Community togetherness was the hallmark of this celebratory gathering on Friday night. Over 50 people sang Christmas carols and shared a champagne toast with the Ragosta family at their First Annual Christmas Tree Lighting event.
The brilliant idea to have a Christmas tree on display outside Amore Restaurant was a simple, natural progression. Luisa Ragosta said “we bought a Christmas tree from the Sherman Volunteer Fire Department and thought it would look nice outside our restaurant. The next thing I know, it turned into a close-knit community gathering, and there you have it!”
