Early-Bird Discount by November 5 for Holiday Wreath-Decorating Workshops on November 15-17

posted Thursday, October 25, 2018

Get ready for the holidays by decorating 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 15, 6:30-8 PM; Friday November 16, 9-10:30 AM or 1:00-2:30 PM, and Saturday November 17, 9-10:30 AM. Each session will offer homemade refreshments, great camaraderie, and all the essentials to create a very personal, one-of-a-kind wreath. Men and women are welcome to come alone or register with a friend or group. A $5 early-bird discount on the fee of $40 per wreath will apply to those who preregister and pay by Monday, November 5.

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, [email protected]

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