An Ad in Tune with the Times - Home by the Fireside

This Saturday and Sunday the museum is hosting its' annual Christmas Concert. The Christmas concert is not only an annual fund raising event for the Museum, but, the traditional concert with talented performers of all ages, brings the community together to enter into the spirit of the festive season. 

This year's concert is titled "Home by the Fireside", and one of the features will be a song commemorating the famous Christmas Truce of 1914. The Christmas Truce is portrayed well in this new commercial for Sainsbury Chocolate (England). As commercials go, it is one of the best, with proceeds from the sales going to veterans. 

Tickets are still available for the Christmas Concert and  can be reserved by calling the concert organizer, Dawne McLean 734-3105 or by calling the Museum 734-2003 to leave a message.
