Event Description

Friday, December 6, 11 a.m.–noon
Have you heard of Virginia O'Hanlon? In 1897, this 8-year-old girl wrote the New York Sun to ask a simple question: Is there a Santa Claus? The editor's response was a stirring defense of hope, generosity and the spirit of childhood. Join us to learn her story and get in the holiday spirit by making a Santa-themed craft. For ages 5–7; fee: $4/child or $10 for 3 LH programs. Preregistration is required.
