A simple holiday season


Happy Holidays

One of the great things about this time of year is getting out into your community to experience it in a special way. Bundle up, grab a warm drink, and take a winter walk to enjoy the downtown holiday d├ęcor. The beauty of our natural surroundings should not be missed. If the temperature cooperates, you might even get to ice skate on the Depot Pond.



We have found some of the festivities and activities in Batavia and the Tri-Cities area that will help make your 2014 holiday season very special, for you and your family. Read about them here.
