Santa Visits for the 2nd Annual Stuffed Animal Slumber Party!

That’s right, Santa Claus is coming to town! He’s let his beard grow out a bit and has rested up since this picture–he looks much younger, but he’s going to be coming for story and cookies, and PICTURES! Children can bring a favorite stuffed animal to join in the celebration and then leave their stuffed animal for a stuffed animals-only sleepover party in the library! Shannon and Anne will get photos of their adventures to share when children come back to the library Saturday to pick up their stuffed animals. You must RSVP by either reaching out on Facebook or leaving a message at 988-6661.

Saturday’s the Annual Otego Tree Lighting!

Everyone’s invited to this wonderful Otego tradition!

Saturday evening, December 7th at 6pm, bring a canned good for the food pantry and  join other members of our community at the Firehouse for hot cocoa and cookies (cookies are again thanks to Rubera’s) and then walk down to the library via our historic Main Street for the tree lighting ceremony and caroling in the neighborhood. This is just one more of the many things that makes communities like ours so special–don’t miss out! Special thanks to Chad Angellotti and all of the Otego Community Engagement Committee members for all the hard work they do to help keep Otego awesome!

Do you want to help Otego build a continuing sense of kindness and community? Find Chad or the group on Facebook and see how YOU can give back and help make memories in our little bit of classic small town America!
