3-5pm Wax Luminaries Station

As we prepare to shine our lights on our Martinmas walk, I am delighted to offer the opportunity to make a luminary that can be used for our walk or as a decoration piece in your home for the holiday season. Beeswax and a tea light will be provided. Enroll by November 8 by emailing and paying with PayPal or Venmo. Additional supplies will be available at the day of the event but due to time constraints, pre paid enrollees will have preference. Drop in any time between 3-5, allowing about 30 minutes to complete your lantern.
