Friday was a flurry of activity as the local garden club members dressed the house in holiday greenery to get ready for the Christmas Tea on Sunday. Thank you to Worcester Wreath company for their donation of wreaths and other greenery. So much was going on no one had time to get pictures… oops. You will just have to come to see their work in person. Tea will be served from 1-4pm.
And something new this year, music will be provided by Stephen and Susan Sanfilippo. They will be performing traditional Songs of the Sea, and of the Colonial, Revolutionary and Early American periods.
Hope to see lots of friends at the Ruggles House on Sunday.
