What's New, 2011-12-01
On Sunday, Dec. 4, from 1-5 p.m., visitors to Walsh University's Hoover Historical Center will enjoy free admission to the Center's annual Christmas on Hoover Farm. Free admission will include viewing holiday décor throughout the Victorian home, taking family photos with Santa & Mrs. Claus (with the family camera) while ladies in vintage attire bake cookies in the old-fashioned stove.The aroma of cookies baking will permeate the air along with the sound of Christmas selections played on the harp by Martha Meconi of Akron (right) from 1-4p.m.
Christmas décor enhances the Hoover family home courtesy the time and talents of Center volunteers and several community service groups. Center volunteers and members of The Herb Society chose elegant silver accents for the entry foyer and banister and The Language of Flowers themed- tree in the family parlor. The Junior League of Stark County, Ohio, Inc. decorated the tree in the guest parlor and will donate the décor to a family in need. Campus Ministry at Walsh University is decorating the former family dining room where Santa will greet visitors. This room also features a display of works from North Canton's Little Art Gallery. Students from GlenOak Key Club decorated two trees on the second floor, and Hoover High School National Honor Society students decorated the kitchen. Area Girl Scout Troops are providing gingerbread houses that will complement the decor and be available for raffle.
Cookies and hot chocolate will be served throughout the afternoon. The hot chocolate is sure to be appreciated by all, especially those who wait for the horse-drawn wagon for Christmas caroling through Walsh University's Hoover Park. Rides are available till 4 p.m. with tickets purchased at the guard booth in the parking lot. Tickets are $3 per person.
Center volunteers needed to assist the festivities throughout the afternoon were secured by volunteer coordinator, Melanie Hunter of Louisville, and refreshment chairman, Jennifer Roman of Uniontown. T-shirts and miscellaneous Center souvenirs will be available for purchase at the Gift Shoppe along with the raffle tickets for the gingerbread houses. For more information, phone the Center at 330-499-0287 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
