The Suffield League Elves are working diligently getting ready for the annual Santa's Visit. On Dec. 9, Santa will arrive at the Suffield Town Hall by fire engine with sirens blazing. He enjoys letting his reindeer rest until Christmas Eve and he never knows how the weather will be in Suffield. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with Santa's arrival at 6 p.m.
There is so much anticipation and fun going on all at once at the town hall. Christmas trees will be gaily decorated and lit to set the stage for singing entertainment of the Field High School Choir. Santa's elves from the Historical Society will furnish Christmas cookies and hot chocolate to the good little children.
There will be a picture coloring contest with prizes. There are three age groups: under 5 years; 6, 7, 8 and 9 years old; and 11- and 12-year-olds. Copies of the contest pictures will be dropped off at Suffield Elementary School and local day care programs. If you wish to participate and need a copy of the picture, contact Kyle Kreiner at 330-628-1580.
The Suffield League hosts many community events and would welcome new members to join the group. For more information, contact Tom Calcei at 330-628-2437 or email@example.com or Terry Ginn at 330-472-6483.
Suffield Township Historical Society has a beautiful 13-month historical calendar for sale at the museum. The calendar displays picture a local historical sites with a companion photo of the building/or business currently in its same location. These calendars stir wonderful memories and would be great Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers. Visit the museum on the first or third Sunday of the month from 2 to 4 p.m. or contact Judy Calcei at 330-628-2017.
There is no historical society meeting in December.
With all the wonderful holidays coming up and indulging in all the foods of celebration, the community is reminded and invited to try out the new walking track at the Suffield United Church of Christ. Walking is a pleasant way to stay fit or get in shape and enjoy the outdoors at the same time. This is also a great way to get the children out to walk or enjoy the playground. This area was developed in memory of Carl and Marge Rufener. Recently the church used the new track to sponsor a Relay for Life event that raised more than $4,000 for the American Cancer Society. The Rufeners would be very proud that the track is encouraging good health and making a great contribution to the community and worthy causes.
Wishing everyone the blessings of a wonderful Thanksgiving!
