The Gifts & Talents of Neighbors and Friends

Event Info

How wonderful would it be if you could complete all your holiday shopping down to ordering your holiday ham without leaving your own small town?  On Sunday, December 8th the community of Westmoreland will be able to do just that at Home For The Holidays, a local holiday shopping event showcasing the talents and gifts of our citizens.

Fourteen Westmoreland businesses and community groups will gather together and the Town Hall will transform into a mini buy local shopping mall brimming full of the offerings of local Westmoreland businesses and community groups.  There’s no easier way to Shift Your Shopping and build a better community than to support the livelihoods of your friends and neighbors. 

So join us, December 8th from 11-4 at the Westmoreland Town Hall.  Downstairs local vendors will include Of Moose & Mountain, The Westmoreland Historical Society, Edgefield Farm, The Westmoreland Lions Club, Exeter Slate, Long Ridge Farm, Jayelay Jewelers, Moe’s Chocolates & Mary Meyer’s Kitchen, Joan’s Personal Chef Service, MB Massage Studio, The Westmoreland Ladies Aid and The Westmoreland Village Eatery.  Upstairs kids will be able to go say hello to Santa and get their photographs taken with him by Medora Hebert Photographer.
