December 2000 Events


The Christmas 2000 season will soon be here, and the Almond Historical Society board members are planning another exciting celebration. In a tradition begun last year, various community groups will be invited to decorate Christmas trees in the side yard. Bob Morford and Dick Baker are coordinating this project, and groups interested in decorating a tree may contact Bob at 276-6757. The trees will be lighted for the first time on Sunday afternoon, December 3, following our Open House and Christmas program, and will remain lighted throughout December. Everyone agreed that the trees were a beautiful sight throughout the holiday season last year.

Our fantastic decorator, Mary Ellen Westlake has once again agreed to create her Christmas magic in the house, which will be open to the public during the holiday season. Open House hours will be Sunday, Dec 3, from 1 to 5 p.m., and Monday, December 4, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Groups interested in touring the house at other times during the holiday season may contact Mary Ellen at 276-5821 for an appointment.

In conjunction with the December 3 open house, the community is invited to attend an old-fashioned program of Christmas music, readings and carol singing at 2 p.m. in the Almond Union of Churches, followed by refreshments next door at the Hagadorn House. The event, which was very well attended last year, was moved to the church because of overflow crowds. Folks who are interested in participating in the musical program may contact Donna Ryan at 276-6760.
