Tradition of Christmas Shopping in Sparta

Sparta is hosting a new Tradition of Christmas Shopping in Sparta Event on Friday, Nov. 19th to remind people to think about shopping in their own community for Christmas gifts this year.  Socks, ornaments, chocolates, hunting supplies, cards, bird feeders, gift certificates — the list goes on and on– many of us have become accustomed, even started traditions, to drive to another community, pick out our desired purchases, and spend our money there.
