Holiday Open House tonight!

The Christmas tree in the lobby.

Everyone here is getting ready for the Holiday Open House tonight!

Chris is already whipping up a batch of ginger bread to bake over the hearth in the Street of Shops. Tonight he will be making homemade donuts -- YUM!

The live reindeer is all set and will be a bit hit again this year, I'm sure, down in Discover World. Hallie has made a special craft for kids. You can make a toilet paper tube Santa!

Yesterday Steve, our Facilities Manager, built a special "bar" for the opening celebration of "Footloose & Fancy Free: Canton in the Roaring Twenties." Volunteers Al and Barb Meyer will be on hand in their "Flapper" and "Sheik" finery, and our volunteers will serve our customers "drinks." Here's the menu:
  • BEER (Rootbeer)
  • GIN & TONIC (Ginger ale)
  • COCKTAIL (Hawaiian Punch)
It should be a lot of fun!

The Auxiliary will be coming in this afternoon to set up cookie trays for this evening's refreshments. Every year, members make hundreds of cookies for our visitors to enjoy! And the refreshments are ALL FREE.

I hope you are planning to come visit us tonight. Members are free, and guests each pay $5. If you can't make it tonight, we are open seven days a week. Fit us into your holiday schedule. You won't be sorry!
