ALBION – The Albion Merchants Association has a series of events planned today for the second annual Hometown Holiday celebration.

I just returned from the first ever stained-glass windows tour at all seven churches in the historic Courthouse Square.

County Historian Bill Lattin led about 40 people on the tour, which included some out-of-towners. I’ll have more on the tour later.

The tour ended at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, where a hand bell choir played a concert. Matt Ballard, right, is a member of the group.
