COLCHESTER- On Saturday, Dec. 7, at 4:30 p.m. all are invited to the Town Green as Colchester welcomes the holiday season with our Holiday Homecoming celebration. You won’t miss the Green beautifully lit with luminary bags and our arches! Join us as we sing a long with the St. Andrew Young People’s Choir. Santa will be arriving via Fire Truck, and will be available for pictures in the gazebo, so bring your cameras! The Historical Society will open Old Bacon Academy for you to browse and see the rich history of Colchester. There will be lots of complimentary cookies, hot chocolate and refreshments for all. Join us by the toasty warm bon fire. The Colchester Lions will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items for the Colchester Food Bank. The Colchester Police department will also have a big empty cruiser we are hoping the community will help fill with toys for Colchester’s youth who need your support. This year, many local businesses will once again have special evening hours to welcome in the season. Our ice sculptor will have a live demonstration In addition, the 2013 commemorative ornament will be available for $5 each at the Holiday Homecoming.
