Earlier in the year, the Blooming Glen Garden Club started and worked hard at tidying up the one-room schoolhouse and the grounds surrounding it. And for the Christmas season, they planted a tree and decked it out in all sorts of ornaments--many of them handmade by the club members.
It seemed like most of the village showed up (it's a pretty small village) for hot cider, home-baked cookies, carol singing and getting to know their neighbors. Young and old, long-time residents and newcomers--all together to celebrate the season and our community.
It was really nice--with a real old-fashioned feel. We need more stuff like that.
