GPRA Announces Holiday Open House!

Reserve the Date:  Saturday, December 11, 2:00 to 5:00 pm!

Join us for a festive, family-friendly Holiday Open House at Virginia Hall at Veritas School, 3400 Brook Road, which will be decked out in holiday finery! The venue for this event has changed in order to provide full accessibility and to provide for the comfort of all, since Historic Laburnum House has not been modernized.

Join us for assorted holiday nibbles, sweet and savory; assorted adult and childrens’ beverages; joyful music; and, perhaps a visit from Santa. Bring your favorite Holiday cookies and recipes to share!

We will present the 2020 and 2021 Grace Arents Awards to special guests, and we will celebrate their contributions to our community.

Dress as you like-your favorite jeans and holiday sweater or your favorite holiday party clothes.  All are welcome!  This is a free event, but do R.S.V.P. to so that we can insure that we have sufficient nibbles and beverages.

Our warmest appreciation to Veritas School for once again allowing GPRA to host an event there!
