Tree lighting, book raffle planned

LOVELL — The Charlotte Hobbs Library will host a holiday celebration at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4. 

The community may see the tree lighting of the town’s Christmas tree and sing Christmas carols with the Fryeburg Academy Choir — and if residents sing loud enough, they might convince Santa and Mrs. Claus to stop by. They usually travel through Lovell on a big red fire truck.

The library will serve cookies, coffee and hot chocolate, and all children will have a chance to visit with Santa and receive a small literary gift.

Those who would like to bake for the event may call the library.

This year, the library will help Santa buy presents with monies raised from the Stephen King book raffle. Residents can support this popular community gathering by buying a ticket for $5; each ticket will give five chances to win a signed Stephen King book. The winning tickets will be drawn Wednesday, Dec. 23. Tickets will be on sale in the library and at the tree-lighting party.
