Holiday Open House

Holiday Open House

Enjoy fun filled holiday themed activities for all ages! From crafts and activities, to kids' Reindeer Games and adult fitness classes set to holiday music, we have something for everyone. There's even a scavenger hunt and prize drawings including items donated by local businesses and organizations! Our friends with the Shenandoah Area Agency on Aging (SAAA) will be cooking up breakfast goodies and beverages in the Social Hall and a special visitor from the North Pole will stop by and hang out from 10-11 am before he heads down to Old Town Winchester for even more holiday festivities. This event is FREE, but if you would like to build a gingerbread house, you will need to pre-register for the class and space is limited, so reserve your spot today!
