To the owners of businesses in downtown Dunellen:

Before you know it, the winter season will be upon us. The Dunellen Arts and Culture Commission (DACC) is getting their brushes and paints ready to bring beautiful winter scenes of snowmen silhouettes and evergreen trees to the storefronts of Dunellen's downtown businesses.

If you'd like the exterior of your storefront window painted, book DACC's services online at Select Programs>DACC's Winter Windows. The suggested minimum donation is $10 per window. DACC will begin painting windows on November 25, weather permitting. Registrations will be accepted until December 9.

[Direct link to register for DACC's Winter Windows.]
