Enjoy an old-fashioned country Christmas in the historic buildings housing antique, craft, and gift boutiques in the District. There will be caroling, a hay wagon, shuttle service, craft shows, and door prizes. Call 934-6119 or 937-5204 (evenings) for more information, or visit http://www.frenchcreekdistrict.org

On Saturday, December 4, 2004, at 5:00 pm, the French Creek Development Association will dedicate a monument marking the entrance to Avon's Little League Park which is next to the Avon Police Station. The monument features a brick column topped by a 600 pound, 24 inch diameter concrete ball. The structure is fitted with a plaque that reads "Little League Park".

The French Creek Development Association selected the project because it enhances the French Creek District and identifies the newly improved municipal park, which includes baseball fields as well as a new skateboarding facility. For more information, contact Carol Hartwig at 440-934-2207 or visit http://www.avonhistory.org/org/fcda.htm
