With a chill in the air it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. Stores are putting up their Christmas displays and a few houses around town are dragging out and dusting off their lights to start the holiday season. We are fortunate that our area hosts several activities for all ages this time of year. Below is just a brief snapshot of some events you might want to note on your calendar today!
