12/04/10 Sharon, Connecticut

Started my day at The Sharon Congregational Church Christmas Fair.
There was a number of yummie items at their food table......

We then checked out the fair at the Methodist Church. Ran into these two ladies, who have been the best of bud's for as long as I can remember...Wanda Moeller and Myrna Coyle, who were supervising wreath sales, when not posing!

The sweet table at the methodist fair was over the top! And colorful too!

Later in the day, after tree shopping @ FFA and lunch at The Toymaker's Cafe in Falls Village, and a few hours back at the store, we went to the annual tree lighting held on the green in Sharon. The big old pine was brought to life in all new L.E.D.  colored strings of lights this year. Special thanks to Mrs. Smith for her annual support of this project!! The attendance was I felt very large this year. Cold, for sure, and breezy but no snow.

Liz from the Sharon Historical Society was the master of ceremonies and The Brass Band from Salisbury led us thru a nice selection of holiday songs. Rudolph certainly was a popular one, but they all sounded quite good to my ears!

After singing, many traveled over to the SHS where there was hot cocoa and cookies for all. While there, we spent a good hour looking over a new display put on by The Sharon Women's Club, who will be celebrating their 100 anniversary next week. Happy Birthday Ladies! The exhibit is really incredible and I challenge all of you to go see it in the coming weeks and months. I presume it will be on exhibit for a while as it is so great and such an amazing amount of work and facts. Really. If you are a Sharon person, Go check it out! You won't regret it. One hundred years of gathered history. Be sure to see who was their first secretary. A Hotaling !
