Holiday Events at JMM this Saturday, December 3

Join the James Monroe Museum this Saturday to get in the holiday mood!

Tickets are still available for “Deck the Halls,” the annual holiday decorating presentation by Jan Williams, which will be held in Dodd Auditorium from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday. This program has hundreds of loyal fans and will give you great ideas on how to decorate your home for the season! Tickets are $22 for UMW faculty and staff and include a breakfast of seasonal breads, pastries, coffee and tea. Call x1123 or e-mail to purchase.

On Saturday afternoon, visit the museum (at 908 Charles Street) for our free holiday Open House from 4 to 6 p.m., before the downtown Holiday Parade. We’ll have hot cider and cookies, and visitors will see the special exhibit “A Monroe Christmas,” which shows how the holidays were celebrated during Monroe’s time.

An added bonus is that a jazz ensemble from the Quantico Marine Corps Band will give a free performance of seasonal tunes in our courtyard at 4 p.m.!

We hope to see you all there!
