Winter officially came, but Claremont, as usual, lags behind many parts of the world. It did get colder, we got a little rain, but we are waiting for more. The trees on our street lost all of their leaves.
Village Merchants decorated shop windows for Christmas.
The El Roble Orchestra played in the Village Plaza and performed with the jazz band and concert band for their winter concert.
It was the season to celebrate being with friends. Our book club had our annual book exchange. I met with friends at Augie’s for coffee, Claremont Yoga had a party, and the chemistry majors at HMC decorated Christmas cards.
Mount Baldy showed a little white on the top.
Best Wishes for a Happy New Year!
