As the holiday season approaches and stress levels rise, women need a day to relax, laugh, eat, shop and learn. The fifth annual "Enjoy the Season" event will offer those things on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Lander United Methodist Church on Rt. 957, Lander. Organizers Bobbie Muntz, Debra Young and Sharon Johnson have a day planned that is full of unique and fun ideas to make celebrating the season easier and more affordable.
The exciting day will begin with breakfast, welcome and introductions. Participants will then attend make-and-take classes covering everything from holiday cooking and entertaining to individually made gifts. This year they include: "Pour it On," where each participant will make her own candle with instructor Penny McMillen. In "Comfy Cozy," instructor Debra Young will teach participants how to create an adorable holiday candle warmer. "Pocket Present" will be a clever class to make a special envelope for gift cards, and will be taught by Wendy Bundy. "Nature Novelties," by Sharon Johnson will feature ideas for creating decorations from items gathered in nature. In "Oh Fudge," Bobbie Muntz will wow you with a cute food gift idea for family and friends. Honored guest, Chef Justin Tech returns for another exciting holiday cooking class, "Elegant Endings."
A catered lunch will be served by Chef Tech, followed by a short autumn presentation, while dessert and coffee are served.
Many door prizes will be awarded throughout the day. Many favorite vendors are returning for holiday shopping pleasure. The silent auction will be filled with items donated by the vendors, as well as items made throughout the classes.
Bring your mother, daughter, sister and friends to join in the fun. This event can be enjoyed for an all inclusive price of $35. Pre-registration is required, and a form can be obtained by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or by calling 757-9381. Registration deadline will be Oct. 20. Only the first 50 registrants will be admitted.
