“Fall in Love With Webster” is going great!

3 Feb

We’re just a few days into the month-long Fall in Love With Webster community celebration, but I hope you’ve already been able to take advantage of some of the special deals and events happening at our local businesses.

If you haven’t heard much about it yet, click here to see my blog from earlier this week to get a run-down on what’s happening, including the events taking place this week.

The village is really looking spiffy in honor of this special event. You may have noticed, for example, all of the heart-emblazoned flags hanging from the light poles up and down Main Street. Thanks to Jake Swingley and his public works staff for doing that. There’s also a beautiful new banner hanging on the gazebo at that little pocket park at North Ave. and 104, and merchants are decorating their storefronts.

Lots more special events and merchant discounts are on store for next week, and new ones are being added pretty much every day. You can check the Fall in Love With Webster Facebook page for a complete list and details about all of them. You’ll also find there a boiled-down list of events which you can run off to put on your fridge for handy reference.

A couple of reminders as we head into week two:

The trivia challenge is on! Each of the participating businesses is posting a trivia fact about their business or product in their front window. Your challenge is to collect all the trivia answers and on Wednesday Feb. 23, bring them to Barry’s Old School Irish for the weekly trivia contest. The week’s theme? WEBSTER! The questions will be based on all the trivia posted around town.

Look for the Boots! Our Northeast Joint Fire District firefighters are hosting a boot drive all month. A firefighter’s boot has been placed at Barry’s Old School Irish, and another at Whimsies (new shop next to Lala’s). Drop in your donation, and half of the proceeds will be donated to Webster Comfort Care.

Maplewood Art Project: Next time you’re at Lala of Webster gift shop (38 E. Main), check out the charming bookmarks created by the residents of Maplewood Nursing Home. Supplies were provided to the residents who lovingly crafted the bookmarks, which are now being sold for $1 each. Proceeds will be used to purchase new art supplies for the residents’ next project, embellished felt hearts.

Remember to check the Fall in Love With Webster Facebook page for more information about this great month-long event.
