BROWN BAG LECTURE:
THE TRUE STORY OF LA CAPILLA, THE TEAM THAT RECREATED IT AND THE VIRGIN THAT INSPIRED IT.
Thursday, December 6, 12:00-1:30 pm
Museum Annex, 302 W. Broadway
Feel free to bring a lunch. Join local historians and community builders Tom Hester, Jose Ray and Larry Godfrey as they unravel the story of the original chapel's construction and reconstruction, dispel some all too common myths and alert us to what we can do to help support one of this town's most prominent landmarks.

34TH ANNUAL VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS!
Thursday, December 13, 5:00-8:00 pm
Put on your Victorian finest and head down to the very Victorian Silver City Museum, where the halls will be decked, musical guests will perform holiday and traditional music, Christmas cookies and warm spiced cider will be served, and kids can make ornaments and visit with Father Christmas. The Museum Store will be open for shopping and ready to wrap!

This year there is a grab bag called Ebenezer's Exchange: guests are encouraged to bring a small gift ($0-$10) and exchange it for someone else's! In celebration of community giving in the spirit of the Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, the original Victorian Christmas story. Thanks to a reformed Ebenezer Scrooge giving his clerk a day off, Tiny Tim is able to host our musical program:
  • 5:30 - Amos Torres
  • 6:00 - Cactus Wren
  • 6:30 - Moonshine
  • 7:00 - Silver Chorale
  • 8:00 - Concert Band of the Southwest
If you would like to volunteer or donate cookies, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Jo Lutz at 575-597-0229 or volunteercoordinator@silvercitymuseum.org.
