Dickens Faire was another success
The annual children’s event during the Dickens Faire at the McHenry Museum was successful and well attended. Families happily bounded into the beautifully decorated museum to begin celebrating the holiday season. They colored a snowman ornament, iced a sugar cookie, listened to flannel board stories, got a seasonal “tattoo” and were mesmerized by the talented Central West Ballet dancers wearing gorgeous costumes from The Nutcracker. Special thanks to Johansen and Downey high school students, Save Mart No. 86, the CWB dancers, Christina Kekai owner of the new magazine Central Valley Sun, local author Ken White and McHenry Museum docents and community members. Join us next year on the first Saturday of December and find time to explore this treasured museum.
