The McHenry County Historical Society & Museum celebrates two landmark anniversaries related to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer this season.
Christmas aficionado Dave Harms is once again spearheading the annual display, which marks the 75th anniversary of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer's birth, courtesy of author Robert L. May, and the 50th anniversary of the airing of the Rankin/Bass television special.
The Heritage Quilters annual Quilt Cutting Day for the 2016 raffle quilt begins at 10 a.m. Jan. 14, 2015. If you are a quilter, bring your favorite scissors, pencil, ruler, chalk to mark dark fabrics, needle, and white or off-white thread. And, of course, bring your favorite dish to pass!
The potluck, which will begin between 11:30 a.m. and noon on the cutting day, is a highlight of the Heritage Quilters' social year!
Sign up to bring your own object, or just come and watch the fun at the Society's museum in Union between 1 and 4 p.m Saturday, Feb. 28.
