IMPORTANT UPDATE! Our 21st Annual Deck the Halls has been rescheduled to Thursday, November 30 (5pm to 8pm) and Friday, December 1 (11am to 3pm). It's got me thinking of all kinds of quotes from A Christmas Story! Like "Oh Fudge" and "Major Award" at the same time! And the all too real "Sometimes, at the height of our revelries, when our joy is at its zenith, when all is most right with the world, the most unthinkable disasters descend upon us." We surely won't claim an unthinkable disaster, and can't wait to share our community's talent and showcase these artful holiday creations with you over the next few weeks. So adjust your calendars and stay tuned! Check out our website for event, sponsor, and decorator info. We have openings for all - there's room for everyone on the nice list! Look forward to seeing you all really soon. Website link in comments.

We can handle the “Heat Wave” this week because “It’s So Easy” to welcome For the Love of Linda back to our concert stage this Thursday, July 13 at 7pm!
