‘The Holidays in the Hollow’ Gala is slated for Friday, December 1 from 5:30 to 8:00 PM at The Glebe House, 49 Hollow Road in Woodbury. Guests will be treated to savory hors d’oeuvres and an array of wines to toast the holidays; complimented by the elegantly decorated museum. In this magical candlelit setting, the rooms of the museum will be brimming with good cheer and beautifully decorated. All of the one of a kind wreaths, swags and table top decorations will light up your holiday and be available for purchase. Guests will also have a wonderful opportunity to wrap up their Christmas gift list at the Silent Auction and Holiday Boutique, where original art work, gift baskets, silver, and other treasures will be found. The cost to attend this year’s event is $25 per person.
To continue the Holiday Festival, the Museum will hold its open house on Saturday, December 2 from 10AM to 3PM. The public may enjoy the beautiful decorations to purchase, along with gift items available in the Holiday Boutique, presented in the Cottage Annex. Visitors will enjoy experiencing life in this Revolutionary War era house during the holidays re-enacted by adult and youth volunteers. The costumed docents will give first person accounts of the Marshall family who lived at the “Glebe” from 1771-1786, and share stories about how the family prepared for the holiday season. Admission is free for the day. Donations are gladly accepted to help the Museum reach its goal for the Connecticut Community Foundation’s Matching Challenge grant.
All proceeds from this weekend event will help support The Glebe House Museum & Gertrude Jekyll Garden.
