Welcome in the holiday season with the WHS’ Holiday Open House. Wayland Garden Club’s own Gretchen Schuler, Susan Coppock, and Lois Toombs will lead a talented group of WGC members in festively attiring our rooms with holiday greenery. Wayland Girl Scouts, led by Elisa Scola, will be providing decorations for the tree and alcove in the Stone Room. WHS members will also be on hand welcoming all. Many participate in preparing the Museum when we open our doors and welcome the community! The entire Museum will be open for viewing with docents in each room. You may also enjoy sampling cookies, punch, and tea in the Stone Room while you meet with friends and neighbors!

Holiday Open House Co-chairs: Aida Gennis and Kathy Heckscher.
