Merry Christmas to All
Isaiah 9:6-7 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds;
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap…
-Clement Clarke Moore

A Notice for Cottagers – Bird Feeders
We have had several cottagers (plus birds) who are disappointed with the bird feeding restriction.  We have determined that it is now allowed to feed birds from feeders.  Please be sure to store the feed in a tight container so varmints can’t get to it.
