A Moist and Merry Arrival

Thank you from the Cooperstown Community Christmas Committee to everyone who helped to bring Santa and Mrs. Claus to their cozy cottage on Main Street and waited in the rain to greet them. A little moisture couldn’t dampen the spirit of the holiday parade in Cooperstown. Thirty-three little riders had the time of their lives in Santa’s sleigh, the CCS Middle School Marching Band, led by Tim Iverson, looked and sounded wonderful, and Sal Salvaggio and the CCS Chorus helped to sing Santa and Mrs. Claus down the street.

Along with those above, a special thank you goes out to the following: Leatherstocking Corporation for our village tree, Lake and Valley Garden Club for putting together all the decorating kits year after year, The General Store, Riverwood, Danny’s, Fly Creek Cider Mill, Bill Waller, Satriano Family, Pearlman Family, Bucky Graham, the Baseball Hall of Fame, Leo Club, CCS High School Health classes, The Pit for their wonderful yearly Decorating Day feast, Lasting Expressions Photography, Greg Hall, Fire Police, village of Cooperstown, Mayor Katz, Krahnert’s Tree Farm for the pretty Pioneer Street trees, Police Department, David Peplinski and the sixth grade elves, the faculty and staff of CCS, Tommy Franck and Joey Katz, Ann Cannon and Molly Myers, Cooperstown Fire Department, Mohican Flowers, Theresa and Lizzy Russo, Mike Desimone, Julie and Paul Tirrell, Max Ofer, Glen Falk, Chris Graham and the guys from Tallman Tree Service, Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce, Don Raddatz, Carefree Garden for the annual wreath, all those who come to decorate, who stop by the cottage to wish Santa well, who give generously to help us fund this wonderful community gathering, truly an expression of the great heart of Cooperstown.

Enjoy the Holidays and best to everyone in the New Year!
