Merry Christmas from all of us at the Jamestown Press

Next week we will celebrate Christmas, a special time of the year no matter how old you are.

There is still plenty of time to shop for your Christmas presents. Stores will be bustling this weekend as the last-minute gift givers take to their assignments in earnest. Remember to shop locally! Please tell our advertisers that you saw their messages in the Press.

Here in Jamestown, we will kick off the holiday with the Christmas pageant staged annually at the foot of the Shoreby Hill green. It is an island tradition held on Christmas Eve. Be sure to take along flashlights and dress warmly.

The Jamestown Press office will close at noon on Christmas Eve so that our staff may begin making holiday preparations.

The staff of the Jamestown Press would like to wish all of our readers and advertisers a safe and happy Christmas. Please don’t forget the less fortunate this holiday season.
