A message from our friends at Stockton Springs Historical Society

Santa may be coming to town on Thanksgiving but this year Santa sent Mrs. Claus out ahead of his arrival!

Hear Douglas Coffin read his Christmas story and sample Mrs. Claus’s cookies.

Meet some Maine authors and buy their books. Don’t forget to shop at Bookstacks and look out for the elves and Mrs. Claus. You never know where they will show up!

If the children have their Christmas letters for Santa written she will take them back with her to the North Pole. (if they want to find out if Santa got their letter Return addresses must be on the letters.)

“Enjoy seeing a Mickey Mouse Club’s short film about Stockton Springs in 1959. Come and see a Christmas Movie!

This is a fundraiser brought to you by Stockton Springs Historical Society. Homemade baked goods will be available for purchase so you can stock up for the holidays. There will be books for sale as well at both the Alamo and down the street a bit at Bookstacks.
