Arvonia society plans celebration and Christmas tour

Travel back in time and come to the Arvonia Celebration Christmas Tour hosted by the Arvonia Historic Preservation Society, beginning at 10 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017. As the traditional Welsh Christmas carol says, we are “Decking the Halls”.

Restoration has been completed at the school and church. All buildings will be decorated for the Christmas season. The school has ornaments made by local students. The church has the altar rail returned and a couple of the pews restored. Christmas will be in the air at the town hall as groups and individuals perform.

Chili and cinnamon rolls will be available for a donation as will warm Welsh cakes. Piano music will greet you as you enter the Humphreys/Atchison home.

Funds raised from the event will go to the restoration of the town hall. Tickets are available for a minimum donation of $10 for adults and $5 for children. A family pass for two adults and up to four children is available for a minimum donation of $30. Please keep in mind that children are welcome but must be closely supervised by an adult as there are fragile items on display.

For more information, contact Susan Atchison at 620-256-6695.

The Arvonia Historic Preservation Society has also partnered with the Twin Rivers Winery to offer wine with a Welsh flare. Cranberry, raspberry and blackberry mead are available with personalized label. Information is available at the Twin Rivers Winery or by emailing for an order form.
