The forms will list several locations in the village, and in each location, there will be a “hidden” holiday word. Collect all the words, then bring the completed form to Beach & Bartolo, (34 Main Street), for a chance to win a gift basket filled with donated items from area merchants. There’s no fee to play and no age minimum (or maximum).

Free Hay Rides will take guests on a loop from Main Street to the Chatham Firehouse and Our Daily Bread Deli. Speaking of Our Daily Bread Deli, Chatham MED PTA and Chatham Kids Club will be set up at the deli with a variety goodies and crafts just for kids and their families.
