It was a banner day!
Charlton Holiday Banners were installed on Masonic Home Road and Main Street in Charlton on Friday, November 27, 2015. This year, Brant Jennings, Russell Jennings and Brent Sellew from "Sunset City" donated the funds to purchase 12 new Seasons Greetings banners and related hardware and they also volunteered to help Chief Pervier erect and relocate the new banners on Masonic Home Road and Main Street. The original Seasons Greeting banners were over 12 years old and were fairly worn and tattered. The relocation of the holiday banners was done to eliminate the issue of large trucks and tractor trailer units from hitting the banners and to incorporate a larger area for the displaying of the banners.

The Town of Charlton provides no funding for any of the banners or Christmas decorations. Thanks to the help of a variety of volunteers over the years and the generosity of a few local residents and businesses in Charlton, the Town Common area has annually has been adorned with Christmas lights and a holiday display for several decades.
