The Village will be Lit!

Friday, November 27 at 5:30

Sorry – no cookies, cider, or choir this year – and we all know why. 
But the Elves have completed their assignments and The Village will be brilliant!

It's Bright!
Thank you to Dale Des Islets and his merry band of Elves (about 30 Villagers) who have worked for the past several weeks setting up the lights and decorations. 
Be sure to have a walk around The Village to see the lights! 
That’s Dale in the top left.
Assorted Elves include: Dopey, Grumpy, Sleepy, Sticker, Stretcher, Stinky and John.
