1st Annual TREE LIGHTING & Christmas Fest

On Saturday, December 11th, 2021 the City of Troy hosted it's first annual tree lighting ceremony at the City Park. Community members braved the weather and gathered at the park for this wonderful new tradition to kick off the holiday season. We are all so lucky and blessed to live in such an amazing community! The Community Christmas tree should serve as a reminder year round of the connection we all have with one another!

Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Claus, the Troy Volunteer Fire Department, the elf committee and all the extra elves that helped out. Thank you to the Troy Seventh-Day Adventist Church Carolers, Marilou's School Of Dance and the Troy Preschoolers for the incredible performances.

Thank you to our Mayor and City Council and the Troy Rec. District in addition to every individual and business that helped, donated, or volunteered. This event was a huge success and made possible because of everyone's generosity.

The 2nd Annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony will be held the first weekend in December 2022.


Well friends, after a tumultuous 2020 and a little less tumultuous 2021, we are now in 2022, and hopefully it will be a brighter year for everyone.
A new year means a new chapter, and we hope 2022 is an incredible part of your story. My wish for you all this coming year is that you know your life has purpose and meaning. That your spirit is strong, resilient, and full of faith. That you will follow inner guidance, listen to your heart and pursue your dreams. That you remember life is short, so don't sweat the "small stuff", and that by being present in the moment you will find joy in the ordinary.
That you surround yourself with good people, those special souls who make you feel appreciated and loved. Most importantly, always know that you are good enough and worthy of being loved exactly as you are!New is the year, new are the hopes, new is the resolution, new are the spirits, and new are my warm wishes just for you.
May this coming year lead you on exciting adventures, complete with life-changing experiences and deeper friendships.

Thank you to our maintenance crew for keeping our streets plowed and safe. There is more snow to come and more plowing to be done in the near future. We would like to remind residents, that during a forecasted snowfall of 4" or more, it is necessary that property owners remove all vehicles from any street and/or right-of-way to allow for city plow operators to clear the snow.

We know that some areas are tighter than others, but if you have room then please help us out. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter and your anticipated co-operation in order to facilitate efficient snow removal. Drive Safe!
