Teen Holiday Craft Fair this Saturday

The second annual teen craft fair will be held at the Jamestown library on Saturday, Dec. 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Handmade items and baked goods will be for sale.

Santa Claus to visit island this weekend

Santa Claus will ride throughout the island this weekend, atop his firetruck ‘sleigh.’

On Saturday, Dec. 10, Santa will visit the north end of the island — tossing goodies to children who come out to greet him, and on Sunday, Dec. 11, he will visit the rest of the island.

On Thursday, Dec. 22, beginning at 6:30 p.m., Santa will pay a visit to the fire station, where he will pass out treat-filled stockings to all children who pay him a call.

Village decorating contest underway

The Quononoquott Garden Club is sponsoring the annual Holiday Decorating Contest, which will offer awards to village businesses that demonstrate the best use of natural greenery and plant materials in their holiday decorating schemes.

Judging will take place the week of Dec. 11 and winners will be featured in the Dec. 22 edition of the Press.

For more information, call Sharon at 423-2256.
