Join us to celebrate the holidays in style at Old City Hall. In addition to the beautiful trees and décor adorning the building, each Saturday in December we’ll be making a different holiday craft in the Rotunda Room of Old City Hall, providing fun for the whole family!
On Dec. 4, visit our “Polar Post Office” in the Rotunda. Winter is a great time to stay in touch with those important to you, be they family or some jolly old fellow in red. We’ll have card making supplies along with a special post box for…long distance mail. If you want to reach out to family, we’ll also have props and framing pieces so you can take the perfect photo to send to loved ones near and far.
Join us also on Dec. 11 and learn how to make origami trees either to take home or to add to our growing forest and on Dec. 18 to make a handmade paper wreath to add more festive cheer to your home. Admission to these programs is by donation. All ages welcome. Supplies will be provided.
