Christmas Parade and Open House

Mary & Linda at library mantleThe Hancock County Museum at 1008 Ridge Avenue in New Cumberland is hosting an Open House on December 14th at 4:30.  We would like to invite the Hancock County community and all interested others to watch the New Cumberland Christmas Parade from the sidewalk, lawn and porch of the Museum.  The parade starts at 5:00, and soon after passes in front of the Museum.  After the parade moves on, all are  invited into the beautifully Victorian-style decorated  Museum for homemade cookies and hot drinks (tea, coffee, hot chocolate and Wassail), and performances by the Victorian Carolers, Bud Simmons on the dulcimer, and a reading of “The Night Before Christmas” by local actress, singer, and Victorian Carolers’ Director Mary Fern Schmidt.
