PLYMOUTH â Tâwas the night before Christmas and all through the burb all the neighbors were hustling to light up their curb..
Christmas Eve is a flurry of activity at the Nutmeg Ridge subdivision in Plymouth. The residents take special delight in decorating their homes for Christmas each year, but they do not stop at just decorating their homes; each year on Christmas Eve, weather permitting, several residents get together and light up the streets of the entire subdivision with luminaries.
PLYMOUTH â The staff at Country Auto in Ply-mouth knows that hard economic times and the holidays in full swing make it difficult for many to get the needed preventative care for their cars and trucks.
Co-owner Jennifer Martin decided to make it a little easier by offering an oil change discount coupon called âDonât Be a Turkeyâ in The Shopper and then, just for fun, held a drawing for a turkey dinner.
Tuesday, Martin drew the name of Maria McCloud-Wallace and presented her with the coupon from Martinâs Super Market entitling her to a 12-14 pound precooked turkey with all the trimmings.
