A Family of Quality Publications Celebrating the Place We Call Home
Modeled after the historic festival at Kings College, Cambridge, the ceremony includes beautiful seasonal music, and readings that tell the Christmas story from Advent to Epiphany. The concert is accompanied by the spectacular Brombaugh organ in one of the Fox Valley’s most glorious concert halls, the Lawrence University Chapel. Sing the well-known hymns of the season while the Boys soar above on breathtaking descants. For many, Christmas begins with A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols!
Visitors are invited to see a grand extravaganza of trees. The trees can be viewed during regular museum hours and many special events are planned throughout the nearly month-long festival. Attendees will have the opportunity to enter a raffle in the hopes of winning their favorite tree. Each tree will be decorated with ornaments or “goodies” appropriate to its sponsor.

Spend a relaxing afternoon at the movies! This month's movie, A Christmas Story, is a family classic. In 1940s Indiana, 9-year-old Ralphie dreams of his ideal Christmas gift: a genuine Red Ryder 200-shot carbine action air rifle. But when gruff dad and doting mom regularly respond "You'll shoot your eye out!" Ralphie mounts a full-scale Santa-begging campaign. He encounters a slew of calamities from snowsuit paralysis to the dreaded tongue-on-a-frozen-flagpole gambit. Refreshments will be provided. Rated PG.
