November is the traditional start to what we think of as the “holiday” season–with Thanksgiving being the kick off at the end of the month. Between now and then, plans are moving along on The Ballston Spa Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting on December 6, known far and wide as a quintessential slice of hometown Christmas spirit. The annual Breakfast With Santa will also take place the following morning. In this issue, read about how to register to participate in the parade and what to expect on the evening, how to support the breakfast, plus how businesses and organizations can have their holiday-themed events for that weekend promoted for free.
November itself is chock full of events and activities around town–a chance to help others, to gather and give thanks, to be a part of this wonderful community. As always, there’s plenty of member and Association news, including this year’s Ballston Spa Property Beautification Award winners.
