Home for the Holidays
It’s that time of year again when everything gets a little added ‘sparkle’ and the sounds you hear are a little merrier. The Melrose Chamber of Commerce hosts its own ode to the holidays with its Home for the Holidays weekend celebration, happening this year from December 2nd through December 3rd.
The fun starts Friday night around 6pm at City Hall on Main Street. There, Roman Music Therapy Services’ team of music therapists will help herald in the holidays with a repertoire of carols. The lights on the Christmas Tree at City Hall and those decorating Main Street will be turned on as Santa arrives in Melrose, riding through the center of town on a firetruck! Many businesses along the route take part with cookie and hot chocolate offerings and a chance to a get a photo with the big man himself!
On Saturday, December 3rd, the city will be full of fairs, performances, sales, specials and tastings that last throughout the weekend. Be sure to take advantage of the special holiday trolley that runs on Saturday, taking shoppers through the shopping districts for free. The trolley will run from 10AM-2PM.
Check The Chamber’s website for more details such as trolley route and map of participating businesses.
Spread the Cheer
This year, Roman Music Therapy Services is pleased to partner with The Community Outreach Coordinator at Hallmark Health to provide holiday gifts to some of their Emarc families in need. As an agency that works closely with Emarc in our own capacity, this opportunity is dear to our hearts.
You can donate to a needy young adult or child by picking an ornament from the ‘giving tree’ in our front office. The ornament will provide details on the holiday wish list for someone in the community relying on the generosity of others this holiday season.
Gifts may be wrapped, must be new, and should have the ornament attached on to it so we know who it is for. Hallmark Health will be collecting all presents the week of December 12th for distribution.
Let’s make someone’s holiday, together!
