Evanston event to offer lots of holiday cheer

November 20, 2017 by  

Evanston’s Dawes House museum will soon be playing host to an event that will offer guests both a chance to enjoy a holiday celebration while sharing the spirit of the season with the less fortunate.

The Evanston History Center (EHC) will be opening its doors to the public so they can come and learn more about their community while they enjoy some extra festive touches. Guests can explore the mansion, which is located lakeside, and it will be decorated for the season. The center will have a variety of exhibits on display that will highlight the area’s history, and there will also be live music performed for the public in the Great Hall.

Both the young and the young at heart who come to the event can sample some of the holiday treats that will be on offer, and the kids in the crowd can make a craft to take home with them as a memento of the day. There will be no admission fee charged. The organizers also wished to remind area residents that the EHC will once again be holding its annual food drive.

Anyone who wants to help can drop of a donation at the center from November 30 until December 3rd. Direct mail printing can be used to help promote an event like this throughout the surrounding area.

The open house has been planned for the Dawes House museum in Evanston on December 3. More details can be found on the Evanston History Center’s website.
