The North Salem Improvement Society hosted its annual Christmas Eve event in North Salem Friday evening. The family-friendly tradition, held at the town tree on Titicus Road east of Keeler Lane and Baxter Road, gathers together town residents for old-fashioned Christmas festivities. Attendees enjoyed caroling around a bonfire, hot cocoa, cider and homemade treats, and a visit from Santa Claus. Christmas trees decorated by representatives from twenty different town organizations were also on display. Members of the North Salem police department and Croton Falls volunteer fire department assisted with event logistics and traffic safety.
