Winter festival set for Feb. 1

The Cultural Center in New York Mills in collaboration with St. Peter's Lutheran Church is sponsoring a "Winter Light" festival on Saturday, Feb. 1 beginning at 7 p.m. There will be hand-made lanterns, ice luminarias, music, food, and a collection of award — winning short films from the Rural Route Film Festival. The collection of short films includes a wonderful three-minute homage to the reindeer in Lapland, and another movie includes some of the most amazing footage of the Northern Lights ever captured on film.
