Falls Village

FALLS VILLAGE — As the snow began to fall on Saturday evening, Feb. 17, more than 80 people were already inside at the David M. Hunt library for A Midwinter’s Night in the Village.

There was music from Brook Martinez and Theresa Braccio, and Joshua Stone ran his popular “Name That Tune” game for prizes.
