To the Editor:
On behalf of Sandy Hook Organization for Prosperity (SHOP), I would like to extend a personal invitation to Celebrate the Season together in Sandy Hook. It is that special time of year when we surround ourselves with family and friends and create cherished memories to last a lifetime.
Adopt a lamppost!
We are hoping to decorate our village, together. Join us at 10 am sharp on Sunday, November 26, in the center of Sandy Hook Village to decorate your lamppost. It is a fun activity for a group of friends, a family, business, or community organization to participate in. Adoption fees come with roping, a bow, lights, and a customizable gift tag to display. To adopt a lamppost, visit our website at sandyhookvillage.com/adopt-a-lamppost/
Introducing the Inaugural Sandy Hook Ornament — Start a new family tradition and become a collector, beginning with our inaugural piece. These beautiful pewter ornaments are available to purchase on our website, at our SHOP headquarters at 107 Church Hill Road, at the tree lighting, and at the Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue Christmas Tree Sale. There are limited quantities and they are selling quickly.
Please join us as we kick off the season with our annual tree lighting ceremony on Saturday, December 2. The festivities begin at 4 pm and include a visit from Santa Claus at 5 pm (don’t forget your nonperishable food item for FAITH Food Pantry), karaoke (courtesy of Graceful Planet), a live Nativity at Faith at Newtown, caroling with the Middle School Chorus, and of course the tree lighting at 6 pm. Many of our merchants and restaurants will have holiday specials you won’t want to miss, as well.
With all my best wishes to Celebrate the Season in Sandy Hook!
