Wreath-Decorating Workshop Early-Bird Discount November 10

posted Monday, October 24, 2022

Reservations are coming in for the Wreath-Decorating Workshops scheduled for November 17-19 in Willard Hall at St. Luke's Church, 313 Main Street (Route 11 West) in Chester, VT. Those who register and pay by Thursday, November 10 may take advantage of a $5 discount on the price of $50 per wreath, the same as the price for last year in spite of all costs having risen. Since the number of wreaths and workshop sessions is limited, it's important to reserve early to ensure a wreath and choice of workshop.

At the workshops, participants choose from an array of especially collected greens, berries, nuts and other natural materials, bows, and different embellishments that they would like to add to their premade evergreen wreath. Wire, glue guns, and other supplied equipment will make the decorating easy and successful. Open to the public, the workshops will benefit both the church and the Chester Conservation Committee's youth environmental-camp scholarships.

To be assured of a wreath and preferred session, participants must preregister early for one of eight different workshops: Thursday, November 17, 9-10:30 AM or 1-2:30 PM or 6:30-8 PM; Friday, November 18, 9-10:30 AM or 1-2:30 PM or 6:30-8 PM; and Saturday, November 19, 9-10:30 AM or 1-2:30 PM. Each session will offer 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, and participants are encouraged to bring clippers and glue guns if they have them.

To take advantage of the $5 early-bird discount on the fee of $50 per wreath, register and pay by Thursday, November 10. Checks should be made out to St. Luke's Church, designated in the memo line for the Wreath Workshop, and mailed to Lillian Willis at PO Box 318, Chester, VT 05143. For additional information, registration, or a flier you could mail to a friend, please contact Lillian Willis at 802-875-1340 or [email protected], or visit stlukesipiscopalvt.org.

This is a great opportunity to support two good causes, start getting ready for the holidays, and have fun doing it! Please spread the word to family and friends.
