“Christmas in the Village” is always the highlight of the Christmas season in Sublette. Families are invited to come and enjoy a festive evening. If you plan to attend, bring a donation of food and toys that will then be given to the needy at Christmas.

Visitors are also encouraged to sign up for a drawing of free gifts.

President David Howell reviewed the new businesses that have opened in Sublette recently. He noted this has been a very good year for the village. Howell will be moving from the area soon, so Steve Klein will serve as the president of the association until the next election.

The next meeting will be the annual meeting and election of officers in January 2018.
