Hometown Holidays celebration continues

A coalition of local businesses, churches and community organizations has launched a new holiday initiative – Yarmouth Hometown Holidays. The community-wide partnership was created to highlight the holiday events and charitable activities that take place in Yarmouth during the holiday season. It is hosted by the Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce. Throughout December, Yarmouth will host a series of events and activities, including:

Dec. 18: Songs of the Season, presented by 317 Main Community Music Center at First Parish Church. 116 Main St., Yarmouth. The concert is described as “festive reharmonizations of classic carols and pop gems from the American archives of holiday-ish music.” It features Rose Cousins, Jenna Moynihan, Laura Cortese, Jennifer Kimball, Rose Polenzani and Valerie Thompson, the 317 Local Vocals and other special guests. Tickets are $15, and $10 for kids and seniors. They can be purchased at 317 Main or online at 317songsoftheseason.brownpapertickets.com. Those who attend are asked to bring a non-perishable food donation for the Yarmouth Food Panty. For more information, see www.317main.org.

Dec. 24: West Side Trail fourth annual Walk with Santa, 10 a.m., meet at the upper Tyler Technologies parking lot.

The Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce has created a master Yarmouth Hometown Holidays calendar online at www.yarmouthmaine.org/yarmouth-hometown-holidays. In addition, the community is invited to check out the new Yarmouth Hometown Holidays Facebook page.
