Granville Museums Collaborate on Holiday Events
Building off last year’s successful town-wide celebration, Christmas in Granville, N.Y., the Slate Valley Museum and the Pember Library and Museum are partnering to hold two holiday festivals this year. The Slate Valley Museum will hold its 3rd annual Slate Valley Festival of Trees, and the Pember will introduce an entirely new event – a Festival of Wreaths. Both events will open to the public on December 5 as part of their First Friday series.
“We are so excited to collaborate more closely with the Pember this Christmas. Their Festival of Wreaths will really add to the holiday experience here in Granville,” explained Slate Valley Museum board president Molly Biggs Celani. Mary King, Pember Library and Museum Board of Trustees President, concurs. “We are thrilled to be joining the Slate Valley Museum’s popular holiday event! It’s an honor to be working together, and we’re excited about offering more ways for the community to participate in this holiday tradition! ”
The two holiday festivals will coincide with the Village’s spectacular lighting ceremony on December 5. The deadline to register trees and wreaths is November 15. Registration forms for both events are available on the museums’ websites. The Pember Library and Museum is located at 33 West Main Street in Granville/pember.sals.edu, 518-642-2525. The Slate Valley Museum is located at 17 Water Street in Granville. slatevalleymuseum.org, 518-642-1417.
