We invite everyone to walk the neighborhood, admire the Luminaria and come to the Library parking lot (Kensington St., between 3rd and 4th Sts.), beginning at 6 pm until 8 pm, for the celebration.

Santa will arrive around 6:30 pm with a little something for the youngsters.
Even if you won’t be placing luminaria in front of your home, please join us for friendship and refreshments. This is a wonderful family activity and a great opportunity to greet your neighbors.
