Brandon will be hosting festive events this holiday season

BRANDON — You can start your holiday season off with a meaningful and enduring tradition of remembrance in Brandon — the Brandon Memory Tree. Donations of $1 per name in memory of your loved ones help light the tree. Names will be printed in the Brandon Reporter newspaper.
To sponsor a bulb, write a check made out to Brandon Area Chamber of Commerce (BACC) and mail it to BACC, PO Box 267, Brandon VT 05733. Names may also be dropped off at Carr’s Florist & Gifts. Make sure to include your name and phone number and the name(s) of loved ones.
Singing and Lighting of the Memory Tree this year will be on Sunday, Nov. 26, beginning at 3:30 p.m. in front of Brandon Town Hall, Conant Square.
For more information, contact the Brandon Area Chamber of Commerce at 247-6401 or visit brandon.org.
And thus will begin the holiday season in Brandon.
Many festive events are scheduled over the coming month that are sure to put Brandon-area residents in a holiday frame of mind.
Moonlight Madness in Brandon is a time for sales, discounts, specials, exceptional deals, warm drinks and sweet treats. The dates for this townwide sales event are Wednesday, Dec. 6, and Thursday, Dec. 21 — for the most part 4-9 p.m. Many shops will be offering 10 or 20 percent off storewide. And on the 6th, 4-8 p.m., up to 20 vendors will set up in the Brandon Town Hall for Moonlight Madness.
During Moonlight Madness, fill out a ticket at each participating location for a drawing of $100 in Brandon Bucks from the Brandon Area Chamber of Commerce and area businesses. Last year Sandy Munger was the winner.
The Brandon Area Chamber of Commerce’s Christmas decorating contest returns this year. Judges will be on the streets on the second week in December, starting at 5 p.m. — be sure to have your lights on! There will be four categories judged:
•  Residential Traditional.
•  Residential Whimsical (this includes blow-up decorations).
•  Civic.
•  Commercial.
Anyone can call in their own place or someone else’s and the judges will be at liberty to nominate their favorite picks also. Contact the chamber of commerce to nominate a display at 802-247-6401 or by email at: [email protected].
On Saturday, Dec. 16, plan for the Brandon Farmers’ Market annual Holiday Fair at Neshobe School. It will take place from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. with the promise of many vendors. Look for maple syrup, cheese, honey, baked goods, hand knit items, canned goods, wooden toys, dried flowers, aprons, jams and jellies, holiday décor and more.
