Community members participate in the 2022 Fort McCoy Christmas Tree Lighting Event at McCoy's Community Center on Dec. 1, 2022, at Fort McCoy, Wis.

The event drew dozens of installation community members.

The event not only included the tree lighting but other holiday activities inside the center.

The event was coordinated by the Fort McCoy Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation.
