“Now, the common is really decorated nicely”

You can get Santa twice this weekend. Saturday in Bellingham and Sunday in Franklin.  From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"Santa Claus will take a quick jaunt through Bellingham Saturday evening before being delivered to the town common for a lighting ceremony involving hot cocoa, holiday songs and seasonal cheer. 
Santa’s journey will start at 5:25 p.m. at the Bellingham Middle School, and he will be escorted along South Main Street to the common. Local residents are invited to join the escort or view the procession along the route while students hand out candy canes. 
Santa’s quick trip to the common is organized by the Bellingham Lions Club. 
The lighting itself - which begins at 6 p.m. - is a tradition that dates back to the establishment of the town common 20 years ago. Town Common Trustee Chairwoman Joanne Arcand said the ceremony had grown a lot over the years."

Santa's arrival (photo slideshow)

I missed the tree lighting ceremony at Dean College but did manage to make it around to most of the Holiday Stroll on Thursday evening. As I made the rounds however, it was too dark to take good photos. I do have additional photos from Santa's arrival on the Town Common on Sunday to share:

Second Annual Giving Tree to benefit The Santa Foundation

The United Regional Young Professionals Organization (YPO), a group of young professionals having an interest in social and business networking, community involvement, and professional development; is proud to announce their second annual Giving Tree collection efforts for The Santa Foundation.

With the holidays quickly approaching and the giving season upon us, the YPO has created a Giving Tree collection drive to benefit The Santa Foundation. The tree has been set up at the Hampton Inn in Franklin, MA where patrons can collect an ornament to donate new hats, mittens or scarves for all ages. Can’t get to the Hampton Inn? Don’t worry; picking up an ornament isn’t required to donate.

Patrons can drop off all unwrapped donations to the Hampton Inn, 735 Union Street, Franklin, MA or to the United Regional Chamber of Commerce office at 42 Union Street, Attleboro, MA. Donations must be returned by December 9, 2011. Members of the YPO will deliver all of the items collected to The Santa Foundation after this date.

The Santa Foundation in Franklin, MA was established over 25 years ago to fulfill one goal - to provide gifts for families in need at Christmas time. 100% of all contributions, cash and gifts received go directly to local families in need. In 2010 alone, The Santa Foundation assisted over 700 families.
