A Roscoe Christmas

| October 28, 2014

Roscoe Village is now all decked out for the holiday season as volunteers came to the Visitor’s Center on Tuesday, Oct. 28 from 8 – 11 a.m. to deck the halls with traditional Christmas ornaments and decorations. Nine volunteers and four employees spent most of their time decorating the two main trees that grace the entrance and the founder’s room with hand-crafted ornaments with some featuring dried flowers from Roscoe Village. “We are using things they might have put on their trees in the 1800s,” said Connie Miller. “These are the items they might have had in their home.” There are no lights on the trees, but candles are clipped to the edge of the branches, which would have been used long ago to light the trees. A wide-array of snacks were available for the volunteers, which were made by Miller and Becky Alford and included cookies, brownies, popcorn, carrots, cheese, and coffee. The Visitor’s Center is open seven days a week now until Dec. 31 and will then be closed until April. Christmas tours also begin in the village on Nov. 1, which is why volunteers were decorating so early. “We always have a good group of workers,” said Miller.
