Old-fashioned Holiday Social Dec. 4 in English Camp barracks
December 3, 2010 · 3:29 PM
Join San Juan Island National Historical Park staff and volunteers for the annual old-fashioned Holiday Social, tree-trimming and cookie potluck from noon to 3 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 4, at English Camp.
Visitors are invited to bring holiday cookies and ornaments to hang on the tree, which 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 2010 Volunteer of the Year award and volunteer recognition is scheduled for 2 p.m.
Admission is free. The park will provide beverages, two crackling fires to warm the bones and entertainment to include staff and volunteer re-enactors in period uniforms and dress, storytelling and folk dancing with “Sugar on the Floor.”
A motorized golf cart will be available in the English Camp parking area for persons with accessibility needs. For information, call 378-2240, ext. 2227.
