AYER -- Ayer Public Library, in partnership with ArtsNashoba, will be hosting a community Yuletide Celebration from 1-4 p.m. on Dec. 21 at Town Hall.

Celebrate the winter solstice with family-friendly snacks, crafts, arts, music, games, activities, gift-giving and buying.

Local artists, individuals, businesses, vendors and organizations are invited to participate in the festivities by reserving a table/booth to share your talent, your product, your art or something tasty to tempt palates. There will be face-painting, crafters, singing and art stations, gift-selling, ornament personalization, cookies and more!

If we're lucky, maybe a jolly old elf in a red suit might even stop by!

This event is a fundraiser for Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry of Devens, so donations of food and funds will be accepted at this event. There is no fee to participate, but if you charge for anything, we ask only that a percentage is given back to the cause.

Come share in the wealth of the season and the community!

For information, if you would like to offer a donation or to reserve a table at this event (while space permits), email JulieAnn@ArtsNashoba.org or call 978-772-2545. Deadline is Dec. 1.
