Historic St. Mary’s City, MD- Historic St. Mary’s City (HSMC) has opened registration for two different holiday workshops, each focusing on natural crafts.

The first invites guests to bundle up, celebrate the season, and join HSMC December 7, from 12:30 pm – 2:30 p.m. for the Holiday Craft workshop, featuring crafts from the past. Attendees will be able to dip a candle, make a wool angel, and be a part of a traditional wassail celebration.

This workshop is by registration only, with pre-payment required upon registration. The cost is $10 (free for Friends members of HSMC). The program is appropriate for children ages five and older. Those that register may check in on the day of the program at The Shop at Farthing’s Ordinary, 47414 Old State House Road, St. Mary’s City, Maryland 20686.

HSMC has brought back the popular Evergreen Workshop, which will take place on December 14 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. The fun seasonal craft workshop will have you design a holiday centerpiece that is uniquely yours using a variety of fresh evergreens. Light refreshments and materials will be provided. Attendees are recommended to bring their own hand clippers; all other materials will be provided. The cost for the program is $40 ($30 for Friends members of HSMC). The workshop is recommended for ages 12 and older. Registration is required, with pre-payment due upon registration.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
