The Bay Village Historical Society and the Bay Village Kiwanis are asking Bay residents to join them in celebrating an old-fashioned community Christmas on Sunday, Dec. 6, 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. A kickoff to the holiday season, the event will include a children’s gingerbread house contest at Rose Hill Museum, the reading of holiday stories, caroling and crafts for kids in the Bay Village Community House, the Kiwanis Christmas tree sale, a visit by Santa Claus and the lighting of the community tree in the Cahoon Memorial Park gazebo. Residents can help to “Light up Bay Village” by placing luminaries in their yards that evening. More event details are to follow.
Other Bay Village community groups are invited to participate by decorating a holiday wreath, to be displayed in the gazebo. Tables in the Community House are available for the sale of Christmas ornaments and merchandise. Any civic or school groups interested in taking part in the festivities or selling holiday merchandise should contact Cynthia Eakin at email@example.com or 216-213-0312, or Rhonda Schneider at firstname.lastname@example.org or 216-225-6538.
