Sutter County Museum Christmas Events - Volunteers Needed!
November 15, 2005
The Sutter County Museum is hosting a range of Christmas events this year with a
little something for everybody. Volunteers are especially needed to help out with
the following events:
Decoration Day, December 8:
We need volunteers to arrive at 9:00 a.m. to help decorate the Museum with fresh
greens and decorate the big tree. Everyone is welcome for as long as they want to
stay. Wear casual clothes and bring gloves. Bringing hand pruners to trim branches
is a good idea too.
We are also in need of evergreen clippings / prunings. Folks can leave them
behind the Museum in the week prior to Decoration Day.
Trees & Traditions Day, December 10:
Trees & Traditions is a festive gala that many people say is one of the top
holiday events our community offers. The theme this year is The Character of Home.
Tickets are $30 each and are available from Museum Commissioners and at the Museum.
The event runs from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. There will be food, music and mingling.
Open House & Children's Program, December 18:
