Christmas Open House and Bake Sale
12th Annual Christmas Open House and Bake Sale
Members of the Seymour Community Historical Society are busy as Santa’s elves, decorating the museum and preparing their favorite baked goods for the annual open house. This year’s event, starting at 9:00 AM on Saturday, December 5, features a wide selection of home-baked pies, cookies, cakes, candy and assorted Christmas treats. A number of craft goods, suitable for Christmas presents, will also be available.
The theme this year is, Frosty’s Winter Wonderland. Santa’s helper, Janice Eick Has converted the main room of the museum into a winter scene with snow-covered trees, lights, frolicking children, presents, and a variety of snowmen. A Christmas raffle, with proceeds going toward the building project, provides people with the opportunity to add to their Christmas collection.
First place is a beautiful porcelain snow princess donated by Tillie Stueflat. A valuable collector’s item, the stunning doll will add to the holiday spirit in your home. It will make an impressive centerpiece for your display.
A colorful hanging Christmas stocking filled with a creative holiday arrangement is waiting for the second place winner. Donated by Joan Conradt, the colorful piece, hanging from your mantel or shelf will add cheer to any room.
The third place raffle prize is a Longaberger holiday treat bag filled with goodies. Also donated by Joan Conradt, this stylish carryall is the perfect addition to your Christmas assortment.
Raffle tickets are available in advance from historical society members, or purchase your tickets while you are picking out your favorite baked goods. While in the museum, enjoy the numerous displays and the adjoining memory forest with trees decorated by area families.
If you would like to contribute baked goods or donate toward the sale, please contact a member of the historical society board to make arrangements. Thank you for your support. All proceeds help enhance the new museum building fund.
