Reserve by November 6 for Early-Bird Discount on Holiday Wreath-Decorating Workshops

posted Thursday, October 19, 2017

Reservations are coming in for the November Wreath Workshops. Pre-pay by November 6 to guarantee a wreath and an early-bird discount. This is the easiest way to decorate a pre-made evergreen wreath with specially collected greens, natural materials, bows, and other embellishments, plus all the wire, glue guns, and equipment necessary to make the decorating fun and successful. Open to the public, the workshops will take place in Willard Hall at St. Luke's Church, 313 Main Street (Route 11 West) in Chester, VT and will once again benefit both the church and the Chester Conservation Committee's youth environmental-camp scholarships.

Space is limited, so participants must pre-register and are encouraged to bring clippers and glue guns if they have them. Choose from four different workshop sessions: Thursday evening November 16, 6:30-8 PM; Friday November 17, 9-10:30 AM or 1:00-2:30 PM, and Saturday November 18, 9-10:30 AM. Each session will offer homemade refreshments, great camaraderie, and all the essentials to decorate a very personal, one-of-a-kind, lush, pre-made evergreen wreath. Men and women are welcome to come alone or register with a friend or group. The $5 early-bird discount on the fee of $40 per wreath will apply to those who pre-register and pay by Monday, November 6.

Checks should be made out to St. Luke's Church, designated for the wreath workshop, and mailed to Lillian Willis at PO Box 318, Chester, VT 05143. For additional information and registration, please contact Lillian Willis, 802-875-1340 or lbwillisct@comcast.net.

This is a great opportunity to support two good causes, start getting ready for the holidays, and have fun doing it!
