Memories of an Island Christmas

Snapshots of a Westport Community Association event

As we draw the curtains on this Christmas season, a quick peek back at the Westport Community Association’s Island Christmas Program…

Thanks to Emily Small, Flutter Focus Photography, we have some photos to memorialize neighbors being neighbors: singing Christmas carols in the church and lighting the first community Christmas tree in many years — perhaps a new annual tradition. Join with your neighbors to be a part of next year’s celebration.

A Christmas Card

From the Westport Island Town Office

About 40 people filtered in and out of the Town Office’s annual holiday open house on Tuesday. They brought food, well wishes and appreciation for a small town way of life.

One of our newest residents made an appearance: 2-month old Ivan Wiles. Santa sledded in. And visitors got a listen to the newly formed duo of Santa and elf Richard Gray singing “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.” The performance left us looking forward to next year when they have had a tad more time to practice and learn the words.

To those who did not receive well wishes in person on Tuesday, Merry Christmas! May you enjoy time with friends and family and bring good memories of this holiday season into 2017.
