Hometown holiday hospitality will prevail as Pemberville hosts its annual Christmas in the Village Saturday, Nov. 30 and Sunday, Dec. 1. Festivities are scheduled from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sunday.

The village’s annual celebration will coincide with this year’s “Shop Small” National Small Business promotion. Pemberville has a vast number of “small businesses” that exemplify the endeavor of buying local. Highlights include:

• Live Reindeer will be on display in the heart of downtown. Owner Ron Disher and his staff will be on hand to answer questions about the unique animals and their role in helping Santa pull his sleigh.

It didn’t take long for Lallendorf Road residents to go to each other’s aid after an EF2 tornado made its way through the neighborhood, taking apart roofs and carrying other debris with it.

The storm hit about 6 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 17, and within minutes Anita and Jeffrey Jacobs were checking on their neighbors, Robert and Patricia Zeller.

“We were eating dinner and we had the TV on in the kitchen and was listening to it, and I went out on the back deck and listened, and it was really still, and then my husband went out and he thought it had a weird smell,” Anita said.

Piles of leaves filled with tree branches, heavy vegetation, grass clippings and other debris are slowing down municipal workers charged with cleaning up the foliage.

“They have to take time to pick all that stuff out,” village administrator Kevin Gladden said. “If that stuff gets in the machine, it’s not going to take too much to wreck the fan or some other part. It’s a leaf pickup machine … that’s it. It’s just ridiculous. One of these piles had a bunch of logs and tree limbs at the bottom. Someone took down a small tree and left it there for us to clean up.”
