The Ayer Business Alliance welcomes all to the fourth annual Holiday Stroll on Saturday, Dec. 14. We will have hayrides with Santa and candy canes for the children.

Throughout the day there will be music on Main Street and discounts in our members' shops for your holiday shopping. We will also be collecting new and unwrapped toys for the Ayer Police Holiday Toy Drive in cooperation with Sgt. John MacDonald from the Ayer Police Department. The toys will be forwarded to Loaves & Fishes and distributed to needy families in Ayer and surrounding communities.

Help make a child's Christmas a memorable one and donate a toy on Dec. 14. The hayrides and toy drive will be in Depot Square on Main Street starting at noon and going till 3 p.m. More things will be going on throughout the day, so walk around and have a wonderful day.
