Shop ’til you drop

Holiday shopping kicked off the first weekend of this month with the town-wide Early Bird Sales, and continues with the annual Ladies Weekend Out, Saturday, Nov. 23, and Sunday, Nov. 24. Ladies (and gentlemen, too!) are encouraged to take advantage of discounts, raffles, giveaways, promotions and lots of special treats being offered at businesses around town. It’s a great way to get in the spirit, shop local and work on your holiday gift list.

Fun for kids

Bring the kids to the Lakes Region Recovery Center from 2-3:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, for a fun “Kids Krafts” session making Thanksgiving turkey wreaths. This activity is free but children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The LRRC is located at 25 Hospital Drive, behind the old hospital building. For more information call 803-8707.

Festival of Lights

The annual Festival of Lights at the Bridgton Community Center on Saturday, Dec. 7, is sure to get everyone in the holiday spirit.
