English Camp: Annual Old-Fashioned Holiday Social – December 8

23This year’s annual old-fashioned holiday social, tree trimming, and cookie potluck at English Camp will have a decidedly international flavor.

On Sat. Dec. 8 from 12-3 p.m., visitors are encouraged to bring holiday cookies and ornaments that reflect yuletide and winter solstice celebrations throughout the world. As always, a tree will be erected in the old British Royal Marine Light Infantry barracks building — just as it was likely done in the mid-1860s when the camp was in its heyday.

The park’s 2013 Volunteer of the Year award and volunteer recognition is scheduled for 2 p.m.

Admission is free.

The park will provide beverages, two fires to warm the bones, and entertainment, including staff and volunteer re-enactors in period uniforms and dress, storytelling, and contra dancing, as well as other multi-cultural folk dances.

 A motorized golf cart will be available in the English Camp parking area for persons with accessibility needs.

For more information, call 378-2240, ext. 2233, 2228 or 2227

Admission: Free

Date/Time: Saturday, December 8 from 12-3 p.m.

Location: English Camp, West Valley Road
