2017 Holiday Showcase

Join us on memory lane for An Old Fashioned Holiday, when life was simpler, and toys and decorations were handmade. Reminisce with us your childhood memories and the stories our grandparents told. Enjoy the delicious aromas coming from the kitchen: cinnamon, cookies, pies, and cakes baking, cider simmering on the stove, and the scent of cedar and pine cone decorations. We will also make a toy to take home.

An Old Fashioned Holiday takes place at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, November 2, at the Oldham County Extension Office.
