Hometown Christmas

Hometown Christmas image of SantaLike many things in 2020, Hometown Christmas will look a bit different this year. The committee determined it was in the best interest of the public's safety, to put a hold on many of the traditional activities we have during Hometown Christmas.  However, check out what we WILL be doing below:
