A COZY ARTSY CHRISTMAS PARTY FOR CHILDREN

YOU ARE INVITED TO A COZY ARTSY CHRISTMAS PARTY FOR CHILDREN!

Adults and children are welcome, you do not have to have a child to participate! WHAT TO EXPECT! A beautifully decorated hall, the appearance of St. Nick with an angel and a good-humored devil! We will do arts&craft, we will carol with a live acoustic music, we will have a performance of a fairy tale by children, a story of Christmas and Christmas music by a surprised musician! And refreshments! Join us!

WHAT TO DO TO BE READY: Parents: prepare a package for your children with a name tag, two girls in the red hats will take the package from you so we can (in all secrecy) give it to the St. Nick aka Mikulas. Practice with your child a song or a short poem for Mikulas, you can help!

We will have water, coffee and hot spiced wine and cider for you, please bring something tasty for the common table. Children are free, we ask adults for a donation, we hope we can count on your generosity... so we can cover all of our expenses! 

PARKING: available in the bank parking lot across from the Hall and there is plenty parking on the streets, especially one block above the Hall to the right.

Let us usher you, with carols and Christmass spirit, into the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!l
