Kick-Off Sale for 2018 New Canaan Ornaments
November 2, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Kick-Off Sale for the 2018 New Canaan Ornaments begins on Friday Nov. 2 from 5 – 9 pm and Saturday, Nov. 3 from 11 am – 7 pm. The sale takes place at Baskin-Robbins, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary in New Canaan, and is one of this year’s featured ornaments. On Friday night, music and refreshments will be provided on the patio.
Along with the Baskin-Robbins ornament, the following ornaments are new for 2018: New Canaan Land Trust, 50 years, Silvermine Fowler Preserve; Silvermine Tavern, 1859-2009 c.1799; Town Hall Renovation, 2016; and the Wayside Cross, God’s Acre c.1923.
Faith Kerchoff chose the subjects and designed the ornaments. Volunteers then cut, sand, paint, ink and label each commemorative ornament. They sell for $15 a piece, and all proceeds go to The New Canaan Historical Society. There are also ornaments from previous years available for purchase.
