As he did before COVID appeared, Santa Claus is coming to town – again!  He’ll be meeting and greeting visitors at the Andover Community Hub at 157 Main Street in Andover Village from 2 to 4 PM on Sunday, December 4.

Kids especially may want to come by to have a one-on-one chat with the jolly old fellow, have their picture taken with him, make a wish list and send it to the North Pole, create an ornament for their holiday tree, and get a sweet treat to eat, courtesy of the Andover Service Club. Parents are welcome too, of course. Just drop by anytime between 2 and 4.

As an added attraction, and available for viewing at any time the Hub is open, a miniature Santa’s Village, erected by local resident Renee Goodwin from her private collection, will appear throughout the month of December in the Hub’s open community room.

Following Santa’s visit, kids and their parents can walk from the Hub to the Town Offices Building just up Main Street for the lighting of the town Christmas tree and a brief carol sing.
