The town of Dresden put on another great party this year. Door prizes included a prize for a girl and a prize for a boy, poinsettias, gift cards from the Historic Grounds Restaurant, coffee mugs, maple syrup, and small fruit cakes for the adults.

Town Councilman, John Barber, Jr., has played Santa for many years. Jack Eggleston, the Town Justice, has read “Twas the Night Before Christmas…” for many years also. Many thanks to Linda Barber and Sue Foster Ives for buying the refreshments and presents, setting up and getting everything ready.

This year was a blast!!! It was a very happy party with lots of comradely, Laurie Brunelle always put out the decorations. A few years ago some volunteers made the Gingerbread House. Miraculously, it has stayed together all this time.

Here are some pictures from the fun afternoon.
