Welcome to the Chamber
The purpose of the Chamber of Commerce shall be to create a more favorable atmosphere for local business in harmony with the quality and character of the community.

The Board of Directors meets the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. The next meeting will be held December 11th in the Killingworth Library meeting room. All members are welcome to attend. Business owners interested in joining the Chamber are also invited to attend.
Christmas at the Farm - Saturday, December 6th .
It's not too early to put some Holiday events on your calendar. Reserve Dec. 6 for the Chamber of Commerce's Christmas at the Farm. Inclement weather date is Dec. 7. Join us for a tree lighting ceremony, Christmas carols, refreshments and shopping with your local non-profit and Chamber vendors.
In This Month's Krier
Killingworth Lions Inducts First Women Members
The Killingworth Lions Club has sworn in its first women members - an historic first. The newest Lions - Nancy Keyes, Laurie Kumnick, Ann Pellegrini, Carol Reimers and Peg Scofield - took an oath that included Helen Keller's challenge to become "Knights of the Blind."

In 1987, the constitution of Lions Clubs International was amended to allow for women to become members. Lions Club membership is by "invitation only" as mandated by its constitution and by-laws. All member applicants need a sponsor who is an active member and of good standing in the club.
President's Message
Carrie Sassi
Season greetings. Wow! Hard to believe we're wrapping up another year. Seems like just a few months ago we were planning the last Christmas at the Farm, but in less than a week we'll be hosting the event once again.

I hope you'll come out and enjoy the festivities on Dec. 6 at Parmelee Farm from 2 – 5 p.m. There will be horse-drawn carriage rides, caroling, crafts, local business vendors and refreshments. And, of course, the evening will end with the traditional lighting of the Christmas tree which was planted and mulched last month by Madison Flower Shoppe – a tree that will be enjoyed by the community for years to come.

Santa has several Killingworth appearances on his schedule before the big night. He will, of course, be stopping by Christmas at the Farm, but he will also be having pancakes on Dec. 13 with children at the Killingworth Nursery School. He will be at the Congregational Church fair on Dec. 6th. Christmas wish lists can be mailed to Santa at the Library.

And, wish lists for others are available at KES, True Value and the Killingworth Pharmacy. Thank you to the Killingworth Women's Organization for once again coordinating the much-needed Gregory Bousquet Annual Wish Drive

I hope you'll shop local for the holidays. Our businesses can help you with a variety of holiday wishes.

Winterberry Farm, Running Brook Farms are the perfect stop for wreaths, greens, and trees. The Lions Club also sell beautiful trees at the Killingworth circle. For decorations for inside and out, visit Killingworth True Value. Stock up on your greeting cards and wrapping supplies at Killingworth Pharmacy and your desserts and breads at Cozy Corner Bake Shoppe. Don't forget your furry friends with some treats from Chuck Waggin, or maybe a pet-acure at Dogs to Dragons. Need wine and spirits for your holiday guests, be sure to see Saurin and JV Wines & Spirits. Family portraits are always a great gift and Amy Etra and Tim Gannon are the best around.

Take a break from the hustle and bustle and treat yourself to a meal out at the Copper Skillet, Dino's Pizza, the Killingworth Café, LaForesta or Pizzeria DaVinci – a variety of cuisines to please every palate.

Gift certificates make practical and appealing gifts for everyone on your list. The Chamber has more than 150 members with a variety of services, products and activities ideal for gift certificates.

I wish you and your families and peaceful holiday season,
