SOMERS, N.Y.--The Primrose PTA celebrates the 45th anniversary of Holiday Happiness on Saturday, Dec. 2.
The annual event is the brainchild of Town Historian Doris Smith, also named a Woman of Distinction by the 40th New York State Senate District.
In 1972, there was one PTA for the entire school district, representing grades K-12. The PTA sponsored a district-wide event in December known as the Wing Ding, held at the high school (now Somers Middle School).
The Wing Ding was set to be cancelled and, in that moment, Smith saw an opportunity to provide a fun event not just for the elementary school to raise money but for the community.
