Local citizens involved in the annual Christmas charities effort are asking early this year for friends and neighbors to help with filling the Christmas Baskets, which will be packed and delivered on Friday, Dec. 10. The rain date is Dec. 12. Needed are small loafs of bread, cupcakes, fudge, cookies, etc. plus small gifts - all homemade. The volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. in the Town Hall. It helps if volunteer chefs have already put their baked items in small Baggies, counting out two to four cookies in each bag. Those who cannot be there to help on Friday, baked items can be dropped off. Every little bit of help will be appreciated.
