The village of Gaylordsville in New Milford rang in the holidays recently with a variety of activities for families and friends.

Among the highlights of the Nov. 30-Dec. 1 holiday celebration were the Gaylordsville United Methodist Church's Christmas fair, the Merwinsville Hotel's "Christmas in Gaylordsville" celebration, the Gaylordsville Historical Society's open house at the Little Red Schoolhouse on Gaylord Road and the Oratory of the Little Way's holiday open house.

The Gaylordsville Volunteer Fire Department and its Ladies Auxiliary also hosted a ham dinner at the firehouse, an event climaxed by the lighting of the village's Christmas tree and caroling.
