Thank you to EVERYONE who helped out with the Christmas in Montrose weekend – the planning committee, the organizations who volunteered, the businesses who participated in the window decorating competition, the wonderful crew of people who helped to put the tree up, our wonderful sponsors….and everyone who came to enjoy in the festivities!

We hope you all had a great time despite the chilly weather and that you took advantage of all of the wonderful food, shopping, events and general fun times.

We will be posting pictures and videos shortly, so be on the lookout for those.

We’d like to congratulate Montrose Motors on their win in the Window Decorating Competition for their lovely window.

  2. Peoples Security Bank and Trust
  3. Snake Creek Fire Co’s Antique Fire Truck (Privately owned by Ron Coy and Family)

Warm cider & hot chocolate all around!

Christmas in Montrose is more than just the events and activities going on around town. It’s also a great chance for organizations and businesses to give back to the community through little things. We’re sure that several businesses and organizations around town will have little things all weekend, but we’re going to focus on the ones to warm your hearts (and stomachs!) today.

There will be at least THREE places to get a hot chocolate or warm cider this Saturday.

hot chocolateThe Endless Mountains Visitors Bureau will be providing free hot chocolate during the pictures with Santa. Warm up while you stand in line for your photo-op with the big, jolly man himself.

Joycie’s Cafe will be handing out warm cider and cookies from their storefront as well. Knowing how delicious Joycie’s pies and desserts are, the cookies will probably be to die for!

And the lovely Dairy Princess and Dairy Maids will be providing hot chocolate to the participants of the Jingle Bell Run and any others in the area. They will also have a float in the Parade of Lights later that night, so be sure to wave hello!

Evie Goff, one of the Dairy Promotion Committee Members, gave us some information about the ladies:

Our Current Susquehanna County Dairy Princess is Mercedes Spickerman. Mercedes is a senior at Elk Lake High School. We have four Dairymaids: Emory Bewley from Jackson; Samantha Warner, Montrose, Alexis Parks, Susquehanna and Reese Allen, New Milford. It is the responsibility of this group of girls to support our dairy farmers by promoting the sale and consumption of milk and dairy products in our County. The girls do many promotions in the schools encouraging children to eat three servings of dairy everyday (milk, cheese or yogurt). Our Dairy Princess and Dairy Maids also write news article, speak at farm and non-farm meetings, Fair events etc.

Mercedes and our Dairy Maids are looking forward to taking part in the Christmas in Montrose event.

Hot ciderIt looks like it might be a bit chilly this Saturday, so the warm drinks are sure to be a hit! We would like say a HUGE thank you to these businesses and organizations (and the many others that will have things as well) for helping to make the Christmas in Montrose weekend truly merry.
