Held indoors at the barn at Wyndsor Farm, 2550 Ridge Rd, Elverson

This wonderful family event is being sponsored by the Owen J. Roberts Education Foundation and the Friends of the Arts! How can you help? We are in need of families, businesses, civic groups, or anyone who loves the holidays to sponsor a pre-lit artificial Christmas tree or a large, handcrafted stocking. We have many ways you can sponsor a tree or donate an item for our raffle. You can decorate the tree/fill a stocking or we'll do it for you. Sponsorship opportunities range from $50-$200. We have some AWESOME tree themes so far! This is a super way to share your business/group with the community and best of all; proceeds from this joint effort go directly to OUR STUDENTS.

Handmade ornaments created by our elementary school children will be adorning trees. These ornaments will be for sale. Our sweets are being baked by students from the middle & high school family & consumer sciences students. Sounds of the season will be performed by middle & high school students. Sit and create a "take home craft" with your child. OJR graduate and children's book author/ illustrator Mark C. Collins will be reading his book " The Christmas Cookies". His 8 published books will be available for sale the day of the event. http://www.markcollinsillustration.com/
