The annual Hovland ‘Family Christmas’ was held Saturday night filling the Hovland Town Hall with beautiful music of the Holiday Season performed by more than 15 talented local artists.

Dozens of neighbors turned out to enjoy holiday cookies and treats, hot coffee and cocoa, but the true stars of evening were the dedicated and talented local musicians who rang in the Holiday Season with spirited performances.

Neighbors provided the sweet treats.  Holiday lights and decorations were hung by co-organizer Jim Miller and his son James with the support of a generous donation by Hovland resident Roger Opp.  

All donations of appreciation for the event will be given to the Trinity Lutheran Church Building Fund.

Hovland residents give their heartfelt thanks to Michele and Jim Miller for organizing this special community Holiday event.
