Sibley County Historical Museum in Henderson

1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Museum will be open from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m.


Debbie Wiprud & Joy Berg of Hutchinson will begin each of two programs by singing their favorite Christmas songs, accompanied on our Allanson piano by Joy's daughter, Debra Olsen, also of Hutchinson. They will then lead the audience in Christmas carols. We will also tell several short stories about and show some interesting recent gifts to the museum. There will be time to see other new displays, as all areas of the museum will be open for visitors.

Following each program or museum tour, guests will be invited to move to the office area of the museum, where they will be offered a variety of treats including lefse, rosettes and sandbakkelse. Decorations, food service, and demonstrations are being arranged by Roseann Nagel, with demonstrations by Betty Rud on making lefse, and Maxine Rickard, on making sandbakkelse. Roseann with granddaughter, Miana, will show how to make ornaments of straw.
