Fluters, live Nativity scene, and hot chocolate in Russells Mills Village

Dec 8, 2019

Christmas in Russells Mills Village means caroling, a real Nativity scene, and other fun activities in the center of the village. 

On December 8, the Dartmouth Historical and Arts Society’s Russells Mills Schoolhouse was hopping with activity during the Society’s annual Christmas Celebration. 

Members of the Fall River Fipple Fluters were on hand to perform, and various arts and crafts activities were available for young kids. The event concluded with carolers. 

“It’s our annual community event — we’ve done it four or five times in a row,” noted DHAS President Bob Harding. 

Next door at Alderbrook Farm, members of the Smith Neck Friends Meeting and the Meeting’s First Day School turned the farm’s barn into a living Nativity scene. 

“They sing carols, we have hot chocolate, and it’s more of a community event for everyone,” said Patty Gavin.
