Eighty couples wanted to kiss at 3:07 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 6 under one of the 80 mistletoes that will be hung inside and outside in downtown Yellow Springs for the month of December. What a way to start the Christmas season! If you would like to join us in this short Performance Art Piece, please contact Nancy Mellon at 767-1366. It will take a half an hour to meet together, synchronize our watches, get your assigned kiss station, find it, and be ready to kiss at exactly 3:07 p.m.

SHOP LOCAL PLEDGE

Turn $100 into $300! How? It’s easy. Just shop local.

In these tough economic times, it’s more important than ever to shop local. And shopping local makes your money grow: economists say that you can multiply your shopping dollars by three to gauge its overall effect on the local economy.

In less than a week, almost 100 villages have pledged to shop local during this holiday season. You can, too: Just sign up on pledge sheets at local stores, including Tom’s Market, Emporium Wines and the Underdog Cafe, Current Cuisine, and Town Drug, or email the Yellow Springs News at ysnews@ysnews.com. The News will publish the names in the 12/18 issue.
