It is hard to believe we are approaching the end of 2015!  We are gearing up for the Somerset’s 2015 “Night of Lights” Luminary event.  The date on this event has been changed to December 12th so that more homes can actively participate due to our local schools letting out the following weekend.  Please mark your calendar and make note of the NEW date…
