Holiday Social 2013
This year's annual old-fashioned Holiday Social, tree trimming and cookie potluck, scheduled noon to 3:00 p.m., will have a decidedly international flavor.
Visitors are invited to bring holiday cookies and ornaments that reflect yuletide and winter solstice celebrations throughout the world. As always, a tree will be erected in the old British Royal Marine Light Infantry barracks building -- just as it was likely done in the mid-1860s when the camp was in its heyday.
The park's 2013 Volunteer of the Year award and volunteer recognition is scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
Admission is free. The park will provide beverages, two fires to warm the bones and entertainment to include staff and volunteer re-enactors in period uniforms and dress, storytelling, contra dancing as well as other multi-cultural folk dances.
A motorized golf cart will be available in the English Camp parking area for persons with accessibility needs. For information, call 378-2240, ext. 2233, 2228 or 2227.
