\u201cHappy Holidays & Thank You\u201d was the festive and colorful message from the Wilton Chamber of Commerce earlier this week in an email blast to supporters and well-wishers. The Chamber\u2019s board of directors and executive director Debra Hanson gave thanks to the individuals who help make the recent Tree Lighting and Holiday Stroll \u201cso special,\u201d such as First Selectman Lynne Vanderslice, Santa (spoiler alert: Mark Ketley) and his assistant Joan Ketley, the fire department, public works, recreation office, the many participating businesses and merchants and other volunteers. Special thanks also went to the Wilton Library, Nick Loafman and the Wilton High School Band and Sarah Michaels and her strolling carolers, Westy Storage and Marianne Wilson's Complete Catering for a special Holiday Business After Hours. But also appreciated were \u201cMother Nature for a beautiful night\u201d and all the townspeople who attended and make this event worthwhile. The other message common in Chamber missives is a timely one, namely to \u201cshop, dine and enjoy Wilton!\u201d Chamber events coming in the new year: Jan. 11, Business Seminar, with Library and SCORE, \u201cYour Elevator Speech,\u201d, 6-8 p.m. at the library; and Jan. 19, Economic Forecast Breakfast at Marly\u2019s Bar & Bistro, 8 a.m.
