A Giving Tree: Ornament Exchange

Please Join Us on 12/21 at 6pm for a Winter Solstice celebration and ornament exchange reception.

This season we welcome you to reflect on what you might need this year, and what you may have to spare for someone else. This year’s tree exchange will allow you to craft or bring a used ornament of intention. Whether that intention be for someone’s increase of “peace”, “love”, “prosperity, “joy”, “laughter” or “mirth” … we have quite enough myrrh thanks. And in exchange you are welcome to remove one ornament (for each you’ve brought) symbolizing the changes you wish to manifest in your life and bring that ornament into your home.  Let’s trim the tree with boughs of holly and happiness this holiday season. For details ask Brian at reference or at bstory@actonlibrary.org Free to participate, no registration required. While you can participate at any time while the tree is up (just ask for craft supplies or bring in your old ornaments)

This season we welcome you to reflect on what you might need this year, and what you may have to spare for someone else. This year’s tree exchange will allow you to craft or bring a used ornament of intention. Whether that intention be for someone’s increase of “peace”, “love”, “prosperity, “joy”, “laughter” or “mirth” … we have quite enough myrrh thanks. And in exchange you are welcome to remove one ornament (for each you’ve brought) symbolizing the changes you wish to manifest in your life and bring that ornament into your home.  Let’s trim the tree with boughs of holly and happiness this holiday season. For details ask Brian at reference or at bstory@actonlibrary.org Free to participate, no registration required. While you can participate at any time while the tree is up (just ask for craft supplies or bring in your old ornaments)
