The Hanover tree lighting will be Saturday evening, Dec. 4, at the Town Office beginning at 6 p.m. Everyone please join the community to light the tree, enjoy desserts, singing and good company. Last year everybody had a good time and let’s do it again!
During the holiday season Gardner Roberts Memorial Library will be open on Dec. 8, 15, and 22. The Book Bakery will be open with holiday treats and the Bees have some new gifts to sell. The library will be closed Dec. 23 until after the New Year Holiday and will reopen Jan. 5, 2011, depending upon Mother Nature.
Thanksgiving was peaceful this year with family gatherings around. Bill and Gail Worcester entertained Daren, Fran, Wyatt and David Worcester with a great feast. Donna and Clem Worcester had Lisa Thebarge and Peter Peare for Thursday dinner. Weekend guests were Brian, Sara, Kaylynn, Shawnee and Makala Worcester. One old fellow said he was going to pass up the traditional meal for oyster stew. Mmmm, sounds good.
Several days of ice, sleet, snow and howling winds made the holiday travel difficult. You know it must be slippery when the sand truck has to back up the hill. There were reports of several cars going off the road.
