In past years, Christmas in Shepherdtown events have been scheduled mostly for the first two weekends after Thanksgiving. In 2009, a few brave organizations have extended the holiday activities to the next weekend, December 12th and 13th. Here are those events, with contact information so that you can make arrangements to partake in them. We still have some space available at the Inn for that weekend.
Dec. 11 – 15 – Shepherdstown artist Diana Suttenfield exhibit at the Entler Hotel Gallery on the corner of German and Princess Streets. Vintage postcard sets with artwork by Ms. Suttenfield are for sale at the Thomas Shepherd Inn.
Dec. 12, 13 & 14 – A Christmas Carol performed by the Full Circle Theater Company in their new space at 113 S. Princess Street (walking distance from the Inn). Tickets are $15 for adults; please call 304-268-7798 for reservations and information.
Dec. 13 – Christmas Tea to benefit the Men’s Club restoration and maintenance of the War Memorial Building on German Street beside the library. Vintage ornaments, gingerbread houses and memorabilia from Shepherdstown homes will be featured in centerpieces and displays on the second florr during the tea, 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at the Sweet Shop or at the door; please call Mary Stanley at 304-876-1856 for more information.
In addition, the Holiday Marketplace with gifts, greens and food will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on both Saturday, Dec. 13th and Saturday, Dec. 20th. The perfect place for last-minute shopping – no need to go to the mall!
