Cards for Veterans, Soul Food, Christmas Traditions and Music

As stated yesterday, "A Selma Mansion Christmas" -- scheduled for tomorrow -- has been cancelled due to weather and lack of running water. They've decided not to reschedule, but will be turning their energies to the MLK Day of Service, and some really exciting spring events. However, part of the Christmas event was a craft room for kids to make Christmas cards which would have then been sent out to veterans who are patients at Coatesville VA Hospital. The Selma Mansion event committee is still going to make a run out to Coatesville before Christmas. If you have kids who'd like to make at least one Christmas card for a vet (or. if they want, make more than one card), the committee will be collecting them. I'll post details on where to bring the cards and the deadline in the Diary next week. So, even though tomorrow's event is off, let's make Cards for Coatesville a success.

Starting at 11 am Saturday, the George Washington Carver Community Center, 249 E.Jacoby St, will host "Soul Food Saturday."  Dine in or take out. They'll stay open until they sell out. $8 per platter. Phone orders call 610-272-7480 (delivery on multiple orders).

On Sunday, at 2:30 pm, The Historical Society of Montgomery County, 1654 DeKalb St, will present a FREE Holiday Program. In "The Legend Continues..." Judy Parrish will explain the meanings and traditions of ornaments and Christmas symbols as she decorates a tree, and will then read “A Christmas Cup of Tea,” the story of a young man's reluctant visit to an elderly aunt at Christmas time, and the unexpected joy it brings. Open to all. Light refreshments. Call for info 610-272-0297.
