Rosh Hashanah:

Rosh Hashanah ends on the evening of Friday, September 22.

Rosh Hashanah, literally the “head of the year” is the Jewish New Year. It is a time of inner renewal and divine atonement.  It is customary to have big feasts on both nights of Rosh Hashanah and there are thus a plethora of customary dishes, including: honey cake, brisket, tzimmes and more Rosh Hashanah recipes.  One of the common practices of Rosh Hashanah is attending the High Holy Day services, where the shofar can be heard. Many people go to a Tashlich service where they throw bread crumbs into a naturally running body of water as a means of casting away their sins. On the second night of Rosh Hashanah it is customary to eat a new fruit, a symbol of newness.

To all of you who celebrated this holiday, I hope you have a Happy New Year”.

Veterans Day:

Saturday, November 11 we will be holding our usual services at the Memorial Park.  We have a wall with pictures of veterans from all branches of the service that we are proud to display.  This year I am asking the residents of Freedom to submit not only a photo of a Freedom resident Veteran, but a photo of any Freedom resident FAMILY member.  It is our way to give thanks to them serving our country. You can drop it off at the Town Office during open office hours.

Voice of Freedom:

Autumn:

The leaves are beginning to change their color and soon it will be a beautiful autumn.  The days will begin to send fourth the crisp fall air and we will begin to think of the activities of fall.  Football games, harvesting the veggies we canned and Thanksgiving.

Christmas Craft Fair :

Our Christmas Craft Fair will be held on Saturday, December 9 at the Town Office and Election Hall.  We are taking reservations for tables NOW.  They are $10.00 each.  Contact Cindy at the Town Office 382-6177, they fill up fast so it’s never too early.

Stay well, safe and God Bless.
