I will be down to get some cookies ladies. As usual great work. Im sure we will see the Chief with a mop rushing residents out of the firehouse.

I hope everyone feels welcome to attend the Menorah lighting on the Green this Saturday afternoon (Dec. 8 at 3:30 pm). It's a lovely interfaith tradition in Middlebury.
