Santa Claus and his reindeer will be coming to Porterdale at 7 tonight for the annual Porterdale Christmas parade and tree lighting ceremony.
The parade, which includes members of the Newton High School Marching Band and several other local organizations, will begin at the Village Inn, travel down Broad Street and end at the Historic Train Depot. Santa Claus will light the Christmas tree and star to bring Christmas to Porterdale.
Nothing is more memorable than a smell; one scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting and yet conjure up a childhood memory.
Burning leaves by the curb reminds of sweeping the yard all day with your mother and sisters. I am sure all of us did this, and while we did, we visited with neighbors and friends. We would talk and laugh while taking care of this chore. We knew all our neighbors and our parents knew all the children in the mill village. We all grew up together, attending the Porterdale schools.

Porterdale Police Chief Wayne Digby announced his resignation Friday, effective Oct. 15, because he was insulted by the contract the city offered him and didn't want to be caught in the middle of a city council conflict.
I would like to start with a big thank you to all of you for the kind comments on my article. I'm so glad you enjoyed reading it, as I have had so much enjoyment writing about Porterdale. I have a funny story to start off with in this column.
