The Frelinghuysen Arboretum Mansion
The Frelinghuysen Mansion on the Arboretum grounds is rarely open to the public, but it will be open and decorated in its holiday finery on December 12. This event is a fund-raiser for a much larger-scale holiday event to he held in 2016.
Our Club has been asked to decorate an 8-foot tree in one of the Mansion's rooms. Our tree will showcase our involvement in Operation Holiday, where we play Santa to underprivileged neighbors throughout Morris County. Each Club member is asked to donate one or more Santa ornaments -- any style, size, shape, or theme -- for this effort. Drop them off at the Clubhouse before Thanksgiving. We'll pick a date (TBD) to put our army of Kris Kringles on the Mansion's tree some time after Thanksgiving.
Please, we don't want your family's heirloom Santa -- purchase a jolly old elf or two just for this project. Not sure where to get one? Gen's Holiday Boutique has a nice selection!
