     Don’t let the deadline for ordering great DL merchandise slip by you! The online store will close at the end of day on December 15 to allow time for packages to get to you before Christmas. Unfortunately, the calendars are sold out this year.
     Marilyn Keleman, once again, put together a fabulous calendar that was so popular! I want to give Marilyn an extra big THANK YOU for all the work she has done over the years bringing this calendar together. If you don’t know Marilyn, she is the kindest person and so creative! Thank you, Marilyn!
Here is the link to the store:

Please let me know if you have any issues with ordering or other questions.
Happy holidays,

Drive By “A Small Town Christmas on Mill Lane”
    This amazing lighting display (over 200,000 lights) on Mill Lane located just off Pleasantview Road near Pellston is open the entire month of December.   The light show takes around 15 minutes to drive through and features some fun activities for families.  Some offerings include a drive -through hot chocolate and cookies station, a mailbox to drop letters to Santa, and on Sundays a bonfire is held at the end of the path.
     The light show is open  6:30 PM - 9:30 PM Mondays through Saturdays to drive through. On Sunday it is a walk-through attraction only.
     The illumination is located at 1833 Mill Lane, Pellston. You enter the one-way route from Pleasantview between Van and Ely roads. 
There is no cost, but there is a donation container near the exit.
