The 55 Kip Center has been beautifully decorated with a variety of Christmas trees, wreaths, and centerpieces since mid-November. This Saturday, November 30th, they will host their Open House from 11:00am to 3:00pm. All are welcome to stop by to see the beautifully displayed holiday trees and wreaths decorated by local families, businesses and charitable organizations. Raffle tickets are available and wreaths, centerpieces and trees will be raffled off on December 14th.



There will be free hot dogs and cider for all to enjoy. Visitors will also be able to purchase baked goods from the bake sale and hot chocolate, as well. Kip’s Christmas Boutique, managed by members of the 55 Kip Center, will be open and there will also be other vendors selling items.
