Holidays In The Rotunda

For Release: November 19, 2004
College Station, TX - It’s the most wonderful time of the year for the Museum at the George Bush Presidential Library. On December 2nd, 4th, and 7th the Bush Museum will host its 6th annual Christmas celebration, Holidays in the Rotunda.

This year’s festivities will be held in front of the majestic 20 foot Christmas tree in the rotunda of the Museum. The tree will be decorated with beautiful Nutcracker ornaments that adorned the White House Christmas tree in 1990. Children of all ages will be delighted to see the G scale North Pole & Southern Christmas train that will run through a needle point village at the base of the tree.

Entertainment will be provided by several groups from the Bryan/College Station area. These include church and school choirs, orchestras and dancers. For a schedule of entertainment, please visit our website at http://bushlibrary.tamu.edu.

The Museum’s classroom will become Santa’s workshop where children will be able to create their own Christmas ornaments. The ornaments are divided into three levels according to their difficulty to assemble. Level one ornaments include decorating felt cut outs and transparencies, level two ornaments include Popsicle stick ornaments and foam ornaments, while level three ornaments include toy drummers and foam snowmen.

Holidays in the Rotunda will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on the 2nd and 7th. Saturday, the 4th, the hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no admission for Holidays in the Rotunda. Free refreshments will be provided.
