Our beautiful trees have lost their leaves and we are settling in for the Holidays and winter.

Our Quilt Exhibit was a wonderful success. There were 85 quilts in all. The beautiful quilt wall hanging, “Mist of Fall,” made by Rita Sprague, was won by Margaret Best. I want to thank everyone who participated in the drawing. We will be having the Quilt Exhibit every other year from now on.

Christmas Holidays are upon us and we have some beautiful displays for you. The Christmas tree is up and all the rooms are decorated as well as the exterior.

Our Christmas theme this year is called “Chrystal Noel.” All of our display cases are featuring beautiful crystal collections from two of our members and some of the Museum’s items. The large case in the Library is the Fostoria ‘Baroque’ pattern. This display is from Shelton Clifton. Also, in the Library in the table is a collection of Heisey Horses. These are from Daneen Zureich and features gifts at Heisey Conventions in the past. The dining room has two more displays of Daneen’s Heisey. The large case in the kitchen is filled with several patterns of colored Heisey pieces. These are all Daneen’s.

Upstairs Virginia Davis-Brown has put displays in the cases and in the Children’s Room.

Our Holiday Open House will be Sunday, December 8th, noon to 5 p.m. Please note the time of our special entertainment. The Erickson School Children’s Choir will be performing at 1:30 p.m. Come hear the choir under the direction of Crystal Harding. Delicious refreshments will be waiting for you with Holiday Hospitality.

We will be planning winter activities and welcome any ideas and help you might give. Have a wonderful Holiday and winter.
