Sunday, December 13th, Youth Leader Sarah Beck is hosting a St. James’ Youth Group Event, for children ages 4-12, at Alpenrose Dairyville: Stroybook Lane in Portland. We will meet at St. James at 1:30 PM downstairs in the church preschool room. Parents, of course, are welcome to join the fun. Please let Sarah know via email if you would like to ride in the church van with her, firstname.lastname@example.org, so she can get a head count.
If you haven’t been, Christmas in Dairyville is a winter wonderland filled with 300+ flocked trees, live animals that make up the various scenes in Storybook Lane, Christmas trees, Christmas lights, modular train displays, movie screenings in the old Opera House, choirs singing, dance performances, vintage storefronts, gift shop, a bakery, and maybe, even a visit to see Santa. It’s a magical place to visit.
Admission to “Christmas in Dairyville” is free, however, we will stop off for hot chocolate and a treat on our way back to church. Oregon 4-H will be collecting food for the Oregon Food Bank in front of Storybook Lane. Please send children with $5.00 for hot chocolate or cider and a canned food donation with them.
Alpenrose Dairy is located at 6149 SW Shattuck Rd., Portland, OR
