On Friday, December 3, 2021, Mayor Larsen welcomed residents and business owners, reminding the participants that even as the light is failing and it’s getting darker, the Nederland community always lights up. Larsen thanked town personnel and staff, and said “It is mind blowing to me how well we are coming through this!” Wishing happy holidays from himself, his family, and from the Board of Trustees, he led participants in a countdown to the lighting up of the Nederland Town Hall.

Special thanks to Nicki Dunn and her Public Works Team for making it happen and lighting up the town.

Saturday and Sunday held the Holiday Mountain Market at the Nederland Community Center.

Guy Falsetti said, “The Nederland Area Seniors would like to congratulate Barbara Hardt for organizing a safe and successful Holiday Mountain Market!”

Falsetti further states, “Last year’s market was canceled because of the pandemic. This year saw the return of the amazing vendors, volunteers, staff, and musicians that participated in the market. We were blessed to have over 50 participants in the annual event. Thank you all, and thank you to all the local folks who came out to eat, sip, listen, watch, and shop with us.”
