A County-wide invitation is being made to all who would like help decorate Perkins House for the Holidays!  That includes both the interior and exterior of the house.  For outside we need donations of “Greens” and the like (holly, pine cones and ribbon, different types of greenery)  It’s hoped that the community will come forward with supplies, and time to help decorate. There will be only one tree being put up, most likely in the Music Room/Library.  We need ornaments for the tree, so if you’d like to make and donate it here are the guidelines:

Please use only materials that would have been available to families in the era between 1885 through 1910.  Ornaments of the time could be made of glass, felt,  fabric, pipe cleaners, beaded items, string, ribbon, walnut shell halves, papers of different types, buttons, pine cones, etc. The possibilities are endless.  Use Elmer’s glue or wire to hold things together, but most importantly use your imagination. Announcement of times and dates to decorate the tree and house will follow later


Last Sunday in June 2017 – 1:00 to 4:00 at the Perkins House in Colfax.

The Ice Cream Social is great fun for the whole family. Beautiful weather and plenty of ice cream make for a fun day.
