To the Editor;
The Sippican Woman’s Club of Marion celebrated another exciting Holiday House Tour on December 14. This year’s annual event titled A Simple Christmas in Marion, raised more than $13,000. These funds will be awarded as 2020 scholarships to Marion graduating and continuing education students.
A Simple Christmas was truly a town holiday celebration which hosted over 600 visitors. Highlights included five beautiful homes indicative of Marion’s history and location, the Marion Garden Group’s annual holiday event, the newly renovated Marion Art Center, the Elizabeth Tabor Library, and the historic Beverly Yacht Club.
The women of SWC wish to express sincere gratitude to all who contributed: the wonderful families who graciously decorated and opened their homes to the public were amazing; the florists and homeowners who provided exquisite décor, the student volunteers who provided tremendous help guiding visitors through homes or serving at the traditional Sugar Plum Tea.
Thanks to the staff and members of the Beverly Yacht Club for providing complimentary coffee and tea and welcoming visitors with a historical account of this gathering place for sailors near and far.
Finally, what would we do without our cheerful town Department of Public Works who so faithfully take care of our banner? Thank you all for your patience and support.
As always, every lady of the SWC pitched in throughout the year-long planning and executing of the Holiday House Tour. We thank everyone for the many compliments of our wonderfully decorated clubhouse, Handy’s Tavern. We hope to see you all again December 12, 2020.
Best wishes for a Happy New Year.
Janet Reinhart, President
Sippican Woman’s Club
