Sandy Point Ladies Aid Society

Don't forget to attend the Ladies Aid Christmas Fair on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the American Legion Hall. Lunch is from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. For more information, please call 567-3073.

Stockton Springs Community Church

On Dec. 7 at 4:30 p.m., the church will have its third annual community Christmas Pageant. Any child who comes will be offered a role as they read the Nativity story from the Bible. The children are not required to learn any lines and no rehearsal is needed. If a child wants to be part of the pageant, they should come at 4 p.m. to allow time to get into costume.

Also, on Sunday, Dec. 15, at 6 p.m., the Mount View Chamber Singers will hold a concert at the church. Every year this group of high school singers presents a wonderful concert of Christmas music by candlelight and it is a lovely experience that I enjoy at Christmastime.

Town Office

On Dec. 7 the Christmas tree will be lit at 5 p.m. and there will be refreshments and cheer at a holiday party at the Town Office. Santa will arrive at 2 p.m. on the firetruck along with fun holiday games, crafts and treats at the town hall.

Thanksgiving and Black Friday have come and gone with a blend of family, friends and Christmas shopping. With the closeness in dates this year, it seems like Christmas is overlapping with Thanksgiving. I am sure it has happened just like this in the past, but it seems especially feverish this year.

After going to see Gardens Aglow at the Maine Coastal Botanical Gardens, which was gorgeously lit up with every type of light, I am hungering for more lights both inside and out. I am usually content with the lit candle in a window and a rope light on my deck. In the winter dark, lights cheer us and give us a warm cozy feeling in our homes. Take the time to enjoy the holiday season and look forward to the light that will come surely with the winter solstice.

Thought for the week: "I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual." — Henry David Thoreau.
