Each night from 5-8pm
The Pike County Historical Society and Columns Museum would like to invite you to participate in a community event that will bring the spirit of Christmas to our community in a way that might be just what the doctor ordered, in these uncertain times of social distancing. With restrictions placed on gatherings, it may be the case that traditional ways of celebrating the Holiday Season are off the table. For instance, our traditional Holiday Open House, Old Fashioned Milford Christmas and even the Winter Lights Festival have been canceled due to the far-reaching effects of Covid-19.
The plan is to have as many Christmas Trees as we can, decorated and lit up every night leading up to the New Year, placed along the perimeter of our grounds and parking lot for all to enjoy.
The trees will be lit and on display each night through the New Year from 5-8pm for all to enjoy. We are lucky to have a “drive-thru” parking area, so viewing of the display can be done from your car, if that is the situation upon us.
The Museum will also offer a cup of cocoa and cookies to viewers on the weekend before Christmas – and you are encouraged to drop off canned goods and items for the local Food Pantry.
This is an opportunity for all of us to share in the spirit of the Holiday and abide by the rules. While we have all made sacrifices and learned a new way of living over the last eight months, it is only some innovation and good will that will carry us through what may lie ahead.
