The December LampLighter cover story highlights the work of CY newcomers, Josh and Deidre Somes, as they work to renovate a home on Oliver. Not only are they making the necessary repairs, but they are also working toward making the house as energy efficient as possible, seeking Energy Star verification. What home owner wouldn’t like a more energy efficient home? Perhaps you can learn from the experience of Josh and Deidre as they transform their 100-year-old house into a true community asset.
This LampLighter is also full of info about upcoming CYCA and community events. Join your neighbors for the CYCA Holiday Party on Tuesday, December 13 from 6-8pm at Stone Soup Café and see who will be honored with the Alexia Hampton Award for outstanding service to the community. Those who may be looking for ways to serve during this holiday season will have ample opportunity, whether it is stuffing envelopes at the CYCA Membership Drive or preparing goodie bags for police and firefighters on Christmas Eve. Catch all the details in the December LampLighter. And as always, you will find great articles about local holiday shopping, art openings, book reviews, theatre shows, and even a bizarre Christmas movie guide inside.
