The First Congregational Church handbell ringers will hold two rehearsal style perfomances in the sanctuary of the church at 4 and 5 PM. A holiday boutique toi benefit the handbell choir will be held in the vestibule from 1-7PM.

The Balloon Man will make special balloon animals, just for you at the Grapevine.
