ARLINGTON — Among those making merry in downtown Arlington on Dec. 7 were members of the Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce, who capitalized on the crowds drawn to Olympic Avenue by the city's "Hometown Holidays" celebrations that day, by setting up a vendor tent in the Arlington City Hall plaza for the return of the Chamber's annual Old-Fashioned Bake Sale.

Chamber members Michele Wiley, Carrie Byrum and James Eubanks served up cookies, cupcakes, muffins and bread from their vendor table that afternoon, and sold out of baked goods in near-record time.

"The Hometown Holidays festivities were again a great success, and remain a true Christmas tradition, from the Santa Parade to the tree-lighting," Wiley said. "Our Old-Fashioned Bake Sale brought in enough love to contribute monies to the Arlington-Smokey Point Chamber of Commerce's Scholarship Fund."
