Decorating Chatham

November 19, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm

Last year, when the Friends of Chatham volunteers decorated the Manor House for the Holidays, it looked lovely with candles in the windows and festive touches in every room. Then, came the government shutdown and very few visitors or community members saw the hard work of our volunteers and our “grand ole lady” dressed in her Holiday finery. When the shutdown ended in January, all the decorations were boxed and labeled for ease of use in the future.

It is hard to believe that another Holiday season is just around the corner. With no government shut-down looming on the horizon, it appears that all the normal operations and activities can continue throughout December and January.

Therefore, we will need volunteers once again to open the storage tubs and decorate the Manor House for the Holidays. To avoid Thanksgiving week and to have everything ready before the first week in December, we have gotten approval to decorate Chatham on November 19 from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm. If you can volunteer to help with this project, please let Cathy Walker know by November 18th via email at walkerck921@gmail.com. Many hands make quick work! And, it is fun to add the festive touch to this historic property! Hope to see you at Chatham on November 19th at 9:30 am!
