The holidays  have always been a joyous time for me.  I spent more than ten years managing portrait studios for Sears, then Picture People & finally became a Regional Manager for holiday photos with Santa at New England Malls for the nations largest Santa look-alike employer. :-) 
One of my favorite annual traditions is the town tree lighting ceremony on the Fitzwilliam Common.  Everyone gets together, we sing holiday carols, stories are told to the children & my dad brings Santa in on his firetruck.  How cool is that?




Another one of my winter events I have hosted many times over the years has been World AIDS Day.  Having worked for the Department of Health doing prevention work, I began organizing events in my early twenties, with singers like Reverend Yolanda, Acting OUT, KSC Pride, & for organizations like Twin States like I did at the Fitzwilliam Inn on Wed. Dec. 1st, 2010.  The following year I took a position on their Board of Directors.  The last few years have been very meager for social service funding & we had to institute an across the board paycut for all employee & lay-off our Executive Director until we could secure additional funding.
    As soon as I learned that the town tree lighting was on World AIDS Day, I thought it would be an amazing opportunity to invite my friends to my town, to reflect on the meaning of World AIDS Day, before joining in one of the most incredible community experiences I could describe.  The Fitzwilliam Inn is gracious in allowing us to use their beautiful historic venue, including a library in which we shall be holding a silent auction to benefit Twin States. Items include a weekend in a guest house at a gay men's campground, tickets to a production of the Nutcracker & a year long family membership to a local hotel pool. 
 
There will be amuse-bouches & non-alcoholic drinks provided, as well as a cash bar.  Gordon Michaels, an amazing singer from Boston who originally started the gospel brunch at the House of Blues in Boston will be my guest performer. 
 
It is a free event & I encourage everyone to stop by & have a specialty cocktail that will also help raise money for our cause. Limited rooms are available by calling
Chelley at
603-585-9000. 
We shall be having a dinner together after for anybody that is staying in the area or anyone that might like to join us, just call ahead for a reservation.
It has been a wonderful year & I truly hope to see you all at my holiday party next Sunday, December 1st at 2 PM.
