Annual Christmas Joys Program

 We are on track for a great holiday program, featuring recipes, craft and sewing demonstrations, decorating ideas and more! This event is scheduled for Monday, November 8, at the Southwest Dairy Museum. We will offer two sessions to accommodate schedules of attendees, so choose the time that works best for you: 1:30 p.m., repeated at 5:30. 

Both session will cover the exact same information, and door prizes will be awarded throughout the programs.  Attendees will receive a goodie bag and booklet of all the ideas presented. The Dairy Museum staff will provide samples of cheeses and dip mixes – a highlight of the program! Seating is limited to the first 75. We must have a name and phone number for each seat reserved. Please call 903-885-3443 to reserve a seat.
