MILLERTON — With just a month before the seventh annual Saturday, Nov. 17, Library Holiday Craft Fair, organizers are hoping crafters and artisans will soon be donating a variety of offerings to the event, with all proceeds going to the NorthEast-Millerton Library.  

Having grown from a few items from the Library Yarns knitting group to a room full of handmade offerings of all sorts, the event has proven to be a great opportunity for friends and neighbors to come together to find unique gifts while avoiding the coming rush of Black Friday.

Residents rally

In support of Antonio Delgado’s success in the recent federal primary, local residents rallied on Main Street in Millerton on Saturday, June 30.
