November 18 Holiday Open House 3:00pm-7:00pm. We would like to stagger the different events at the different locations so people can try and make them if they want to see everything. We would also like for the businesses to get involved and dress up their store front windows with Christmas lights & decorations. Plenty of time yet but wanted to let people know the date now so plans can be made and if you find a good deal on lights you can grab them.
