Message from the Mayor

This Friday evening, as you’re still recovering from the bloating that thankfulness can bring, I hope you’ll join us for the annual Midway Christmas Tree Lighting. At 6:30 p.m., we’ll light up downtown and sing some carols to kick off the final stretch of the holiday season. As I write this, there is yet to be a tree in the common area across from Steppin’ Out Boutique, but the soil in Midway is special, and I’m convinced a large enough tree will appear beforeFriday evening.

Of course, this event leads right into Santa’s big visit to the “little city that could,” as the jolly ol’ fat man will be riding a R.J. Corman locomotive into town at 11:00 a.m. The Midway Presbyterian Church will be providing hot chocolate, and the kids can visit with Santa at Eat, Drink & Breathe until 2:00 p.m. A big thanks to the Midway Merchants Association for all of the other fun activities that they’ll be providing on Small Business Saturday.

Here’s hoping you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving week – and that your belt can withstand the strain!
