Faucette said the organizers of Dec. 13’s Holiday Magic, A Dickens Christmas hope to create “an 8-foot-tall tree with several smaller trees that we will light up at 7:30 p.m. that night.”

Canned food collection sites include the Company Shops Market, Bella’s House, The...

“I got here in January and one of the first days, they’re closing everything,” Crawford said, “It’s one o’clock. I ask ‘What’s going on?’ They say, ‘Haven’t you heard? It’s supposed to snow at 6 (p.m.)’ ”

Then Crawford chuckled. Residents of Burlington, she said, react differently to the forecast of a little winter weather than do people in Duluth, Minn., her previous residence.

Crawford, 51, is the new executive director of Allied Churches of Alamance County. She replaced the Rev. Harold “...
