Dick­ens Faire was an­other suc­cess

The Modesto Bee - - Opinion - – Kaye Osborn, Modesto

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.
