CHESTERTOWN — The Democratic Club of Kent County is participating in Dickens of a Christmas, beginning on First Friday, Dec. 6, by depicting the Dickens era in Washington, D.C. in its headquarters’ front window.
The “Great Expectations” display features an antique miniature White House built by a Russian immigrant at the turn of last century who became famous for recreating historical U.S. landmarks, a news release states. Also featured is a turn of the century Christmas tree and carolers.
The club will host an open house beginning at 5:30 p.m. and continuing until 7:30 p.m. on First Friday, Dec. 6 at the headquarters, 357 High St. An official Christmas tree lighting will follow at 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend the open house, which will feature light refreshments.
The windows were created by the club’s “Christmas angel and her team, two talented men, local artist, Ronn Atkins and craftsman Jim North.”
“We are also so grateful to Tom Martin of Galena for the loan of the White House, antique windows and columns, and to many others for their items and time to produce this wonderful display,” the release states.
The windows will be lit at sunset throughout the holiday season.
