Readers of the Gazette enjoy the publication’s tradition of compiling a holiday wish list—not for gifts that one can purchase and wrap in colorful paper and bows, but for things that could make for a better community, and even a better country.

Food is one of the best parts of the holiday season, and this community’s restaurants, bars, and specialty food stores offer a great selection.
Shopping opportunities and service providers abound in this community. Need gifts or goods and services for you, your family, and others?

During the month of December, family and friends gather at community churches to celebrate with family and friends.
