The New Milford hamlet of Gaylordsville came alive with the spirit of the holidays last weekend as "Christmas in Gaylordsville" celebrated the season at a variety of sites.

A family dinner and treelighting held Saturday at the volunteer firefighters' firehouse along Route 7 was the weekend's highlight.

Yet the celebration also featured such events as the United Methodist Church's holiday bazaar, a three-day holiday festival at the Merwinsville Hotel and the display along Gaylord Road of the stunning creche and related figures created by resident Dayle Elsesser.
