Bayne Library celebrated the season hosting the 2009 Victorian Christmas with an Open House for Holiday Treats, Crafts, and Hourly Prize Drawings. Christmas lovers of all ages attended the event from 10am-6pm. Ms Sharon was the perfect hostess making certain the trays of treats were always filled to the delight of all. Paul Toncic, the ADM (Avalon Deputy Mayor) as he is affectionately known, was among those who enjoyed the sweet and savory selection of hor d'oeuvres.
Traditional holiday music highlighted the event with a recital from Pittsburgh's own, "West Winds" which began at 5pm in the second floor conference room. The quintet performed seasonal selections with the audience joining in song. Deck the Halls, It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, Jingle Bells and many others were heard. The concert concluded with the instrumental version and then the complete sing-a-long rendition of an all-time favorite "We Wish You a Merry Christmas! And a Happy New Year!"
