Strawbery Banke was a Success!
It was a snowy and festive evening for a Candlelight Stroll when 130 Scottish Rite members and guests checked into Strawbery Banke with their family's. They were welcomed by my wife Diane, Cappy, and myself at a designated table located outside the VIP entrance. In addition to their tickets, guests received Scottish Rite scarves, tin lanterns, jingle bell bracelets for the children, a map of the grounds, and a list of the evening's festivities. These events included Christmas Carolers, Ice Skating, Horse Drawn Carriage Rides, a Hot Apple Cider Shed, and a warm fire where everyone enjoyed singing Holiday Carols together.
All of the family's that attended received a food voucher for a comforting hot meal with a bread pudding desert while being greeted by Santa Claus and a concert pianist playing in the background. Each home on the Strawbery Banke Museum shared their traditions and cultures for the holiday season dating from 1870 to 1955. By the sounds of children laughing and people singing it was a true Family Life event that satisfied all ages. The event was successful, and we were very pleased with the outcome and brotherly love.
