Community Library

The library is closed Dec. 24, 25 and 26. The next story hour will be held on Saturday, Jan. 7, 2023, at 10 a.m. Bring your little ones by for a story and some snacks!

Community Church

Stockton Springs Community Church will hold a Christmas Eve candlelight service at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 24. The church is located at 20 Church St. in town. The Carols in the Round concert by the Mount View Chamber Singers was lovely last week and the place was full. It’s always a great way to listen to Christmas music sitting in the dark with the candlelit faces of the young singers surrounding you with beautiful music.

Sandy Point Congregational Church

The Christmas Eve service will be held at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 24. The service will end with an outdoor circle around a firepit to sing “Silent Night” if the weather is good. There is no service on Christmas Sunday morning, Dec. 25.

Melissa Thompson’s shop will be open through Christmas Eve and then will close until Valentine’s Day. She has lots of last-minute gifts from soaps and lip balms to Christmas ornaments and cutting boards.

Just Barb’s Restaurant is now closed until March 2023.

The first real storm is predicted for this week but we may get rain along the coast. It is always nice to have a white Christmas. Happy holidays to all and a happy New Year!
