HistWick Happenings this December



Hello HistWick members and friends,

The HistWick Herald is in the mail and your postal carrier should deliver it in a day or two. It contains even more details than provided below about what’s happening around town this holiday season.
Here are some highlights:
HistWick Potluck Dinner—a popular annual event when neighbors, friends, and newcomers come together to socialize and celebrate the holidays. We’d be delighted to see you at St. Paul’s parish hall on Sunday, December 2nd, at 5:30 pm. Bring a dish for 8 people. It’s always amazing food and awesome fellowship! See the invitation (PDF) attached below. It’s also a time to renew your HistWick membership, or to join HistWick (HistWick.org).
Wickford Kitchen Tour— an event that delights visitors from near and far, so invite your family and friends. This year’s tour showcases 10 stunning village homes with imaginative kitchens.
Village shops (Wickford Gourmet, The Wickford Collection, The Captain’s Table, Beauty & the Bath, The Book Garden, Gossip, Green Ink, and Spring Pottery) already are reporting strong ticket sales. Advance tickets are $25.00 and $30.00 the day of the tour. We are so grateful to: 1) the home owners that open their doors (and kitchens) to the public, 2) nearly 40 docents, 3) the kitchen tour committee, 4) musicians that will offer music in select homes, and 5) local businesses that contribute time, materials and talents to support the homeowners with decorating. See the kitchen tour poster at the bottom of this email.
Wickford Village Festival of Lights—kick in the holiday season with a weekend of festivities at this popular annual happening that runs from November 29th through December 2nd. A variety of musical performances, horse-drawn hayrides, refreshments, and visits with Santa make this a not-to-be missed event. Stores are open for leisurely holiday shopping, while the village is aglow with holiday lights and decorations. Come join the festivities!
Christmas at Smith’s Castle—Saturday and Sunday, December 1st and 2nd, Noon to 4 pm, when this historic house museum takes visitors into Christmas Past, while sipping hot cider and enjoying live music.
St. Paul’s Christmas Bazaar—members of the congregation have worked for months to offer unique craft items, bake goods, holiday decorations and greens, household items, refreshments, and more in the parish hall on Main Street from 8 am to 4 pm. Look for the Christmas Bazaar banner.
Read the HistWick Herald for additional details on any of the above—and be sure to join in on the town’s festivities where you will meet old friends and make new ones, too.
