The holiday season is here! Throughout the Village people are putting up decorations out in their yards that make the Village look so festive and beautiful. Many are beginning their shopping as well. I encourage all to shop local as much as you can this holiday season. Local businesses are an important part of our community and have much to offer for shoppers looking for gifts. Finally, I would like to invite everyone to the Village Hall Menorah lighting on Mon., Dec. 3 at 4 p.m. and the Christmas tree lighting on Fri., Dec. 7 at 4 p.m. I hope to see you there.
