    Saturday December 7, 1-8:30 PM - Olde Fashioned Christmas

    Admission by donation

    Come to the History Center and experience a good olde fashioned Christmas celebration as the Center joins the community in the unique festival. The Center will be decked out in all its Christmas finery including a 12 foot tree decorated with old fashioned ornaments.
    From 6:30 -8:30 the Center will feature Christmas carols every half hour accompanied by their one-of-a-kind antique organ. Come and enjoy seeing it “cranked” as the reed organ entertains the crowd. The community features a daylong event with lots of events for everyone.
