Free Community Wreath Making Party 1-5:00pm, Sunday, December 2nd

The Schoolhouse is located at 24309 NE 209th Street, Battle Ground, WA (not a mailing address!)

Want to forget about the hectic pace and commercialism of the Christmas season?  This free party is the best 'feel good' schoolhouse event of the year. Anyone can walk in without having to pay a penny, pick up a homemade grapevine wreath or swag foundation, select a bow, attach greenery and ornaments, enjoy the holiday atmosphere and even win a door prize. Door prizes are the decorations adorning the schoolhouse. The Grand Door prize is a fresh cut tree from Windy Hill Tree Farm. No experience is needed to make a wreath; attendees have always been happy to share tips, tools and friendly advice, especially to newcomers.
People are welcome to bring their own foundation, ornaments, pruners, gloves or treats to share. Additional foundations or bows can be purchased for $1.00 each. BJ Schulte hand crafts spools of ribbon into beautiful bows; each one a lovely, unique treasure.
Two separate raffles will have tickets available to purchase: One for the gift wrapped presents under the tree which include an Olive Garden gift basket, vehicle safety and emergency kits from Les Schwab, a Thornton's Treeland gift certificate, a luxurious Arbonne Skin Care gift basket and more.
A purple heart quilt made by Mary Jo Lewis is the second raffle. Tickets for the quilt raffle can also be purchased in advance. All winners will be drawn during the Wreath Making Party.
The schoolhouse is maintained and events are sponsored by the Venersborg Historic Preservation Society and the Venersborg Community Club. Whole families come and enjoy this fun, festive event. The schoolhouse will be decorated and the wood stove will keep the building warm and toasty. Hot apple cider and coffee will be provided free. Volunteers are always welcome.
