"Old Fashioned Christmas" with Rochelle Pennington


A heartwarming peek into the past captures the holiday spirit with author Rochelle 
Pennington as she highlights a time when Christmas shopping meant paging through a Sears Roebuck catalog and heading downtown to the local five-and-dime, where products lining store shelves were American-made. Her program will beckon a remembrance of a time when gathering around a radio to listen to the voices of Bing Crosby, Perry Como, and Nat King Cole in December was a familiar feeling. It was also a time of letters addressed to the North Pole with wishes for choo-choo trains, record players, jack-in-the-boxes, cowboy suits, cap guns, and Shirley Temple dolls. The author’s power-point presentation, featuring nearly 100 vintage photographs and images, will be complemented by a large collection of Christmas antiques on display. Come and re-live those memories that guide our hearts homeward to the much-loved traditions of yesteryear. “Yule” enjoy it!
Lunch includes a sloppy Joe sandwich, coleslaw and dessert.
Monday, Dec 10 • 11:00am-1:00pm • $10M/$15N
