If you look around the village of Morrisville, Mid-York Weekly readers, you’ll see many holiday decorations. You see some soldiers “guarding” certain businesses. You’ll also notice the park on the corner of Route 20 and Cedar Street looks very festive. The village looks very nice.

As you know, we are in our last month of the year. If you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary this month, I wish you a great day!

Getting your shopping done? I hope so. Only 18 days until Christmas. Here is the rest of the news.
