December Keep Museum Holiday Sing-Along
December 5, 2021—1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The public is invited to tour the Keep Homestead Museum at 35 Ely Road in Monson from 1:00–3:00 pm on Sunday, December 5 to enjoy special button exhibits and a Holiday Sing-along led by Gay Paluch, pianist, and Joe Wholley, flutist. Join voices to celebrate the holiday season and learn about the history of carols and seasonal songs. Discover the beauty of buttons hailing from around the world.
An exhibit entitled “Christmas Buttons” features several special collections of Myra Keep’s heirloom buttons. Superimposed on a music staff are black glass buttons, each one representing a note in the carol “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.” Among the Bethlehem Mother of Pearl hand-carved shell buttons are an angel with spread wings, Madonna and child, and a delicate carving of Mary and Joseph en route to Bethlehem. Buttons in all shades of red and green and symbols of Christmas, including candles, holly, poinsettia, and wreaths, will delight those who explore the historic collection at the museum.
This festive afternoon at the Keep Homestead Museum is free of charge. Light refreshments will be served.
