    CHRISTMAS AT THE TAVERN 2009

    CHRISTMAS AT THE TAVERN

    Squire’s Tavern, the home of the Barkhamsted  Historical Society, will be aglow with Christmas trees of Christmas past and present.  The historical society will host for the third year Christmas at the Tavern.  Patti Kierys is well versed on the subject of Christmas.  With the help of Linne Landgraf, a member of the historical society, she will decorate a Victorian Christmas tree with hand crafted ornaments of the period.  Other trees to spark the imagination of the viewers are various color feather trees, cookie tree and a cotton batting tree.  There will be vintage postcards, calling cards, and other memorabilia on display. 

    Patti has designed and decorated Christmas trees for the Smithsonian, National Museum of American History, the Connecticut tree for the National Christmas Tree celebration on the Eclipse of the White House,  the Governor’s Mansion and the Wadsworth Atheneum.  Her ornaments are in the permanent collection of the Mark Twain House.  This is Patti’s third year of sharing her collections and hand crafted ornaments with the historical society for the public to enjoy through the holiday season. 

    Patti is an award winning artist and Reiki Master, but during the holidays and many months prior to this festive season, she is immerse in making replicate ornaments of the 1800s and researching the library archives for new stories to share with those who attend her lectures.   Through the years she has conducted Christmas talks and workshops for the Smithsonian Associates in Washington, the Daughters of the American Revolution, Harriet Beecher Stowe Center, Mark Twain House, Connecticut Historical Society and numerous historical societies and women’s clubs.  Her joy of the season is felt by everyone who attends her lectures. 

    This year she will be presenting a talk on Christmas traditions of the 1800s during the historical society’s opening of the season with a Holiday Social on Saturday, December 5th and Sunday December 6th.

    The Historical Society is open from 1:00 to 4:00 on both days with her talk beginning at 1:30 p.m.  Because of the popularity of  the program, reservations are recommended and a donation of $5.00, which will benefit the historical society.  To make a reservation, call 860-379-7362.  The Christmas exhibit will run through January 2, 2010.   Squire’s Tavern is located on East River Road in Pleasant Valley and is open on Wednesdays 9:00 to 12:00 and Sundays 1:00 to 4:00.
