Christmas season proves to be a busy season for Aberdeen’s Main Street
It has been a busy November and December for Aberdeen Main Street. Our merchants reported an outstanding Christmas Open House that was followed by another big day with Black Friday. The merchants also reported how pleased they were to see a lot of out of town shoppers.
On Sunday, Dec. 9, Aberdeen’s Christmas Open Homes was held and drew another larger number of people. All four of the opened homes reported large crowds. Each home was beautifully decorated for the season. Proceeds went to the Elkin Theatre and South Monroe County Community Fund.
The Main Street board welcomed our new president Sara Gardner. Sara is best known as co-owner with her daughter of the Cottage Tearoom that is featured in this months Eat, Drink Mississippi magazine. Tom and Mary Gyllenswan hope to open the Kimmel Bakery before Christmas. Our Aberdeen people are watching them closely as everyone is excited to again have a Kimmel Bakery in town. The Fountain Grill reopened after sustaining extensive damage in a fire. Julia’s Kitchen also sustained fire and smoke damage two weekends ago and reopening time is indefinite.
A big welcome goes to Dr. Vickie Jones, who is our new pediatrician with Pioneer hospital. Dr. Jones spent several years seeing the world with the Marines We are pleased she is settling into one of the downtown upper floor apartments and seems to be enjoying our small town.
Wishing all a very wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Glen Houston is the director of Aberdeen’s Main Street program.
