‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Opening Reception
The Board of Trustees of Raynham Hall Museum cordially invites you to a preview of our winter exhibition, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, with toy soldiers, dolls and doll houses, stuffed animal friends, and myriad other magical playthings, to benefit our scholarship program.
About our scholarship program: We offer free admission each year to hundreds of students from schools that could not otherwise afford to visit. Raynham Hall’s Revolutionary War story of principled resourcefulness and action in the face of extreme adversity is particularly relevant to kids such as these, and indeed to all kids. We appreciate your help in making these programs available!
Tickets: $60 per person, $40 for members
Time: Thursday, December 3, 2015, from 6-8 p.m.
