Businesses in Churchville are struggling this Christmas season. as they are everywhere. Members of the Churchville Senior Center decided to do something about it, at least for one business.

Karen’s Boutique is a new business residing in an old grocery store. The owner, Karen Luster, is a resident of Deerfield who provides a marvelous array of gifts and antiques in her homey shop. A woman of many talents, Karen is also a dance instructor! During the month of December, gift certificates have been awarded as prizes for the various games and contests at Churchville Senior Center.

The big shopping day will be Thursday, Dec. 22, when Karen will provide refreshments for shoppers, give a 20 percent discount to CSC members, and redeem the gift certificates. This is the first of community partnership programs that the center is planning for the coming year.
