It's the End...and the Beginning

Please note that some sites on the Trails of History are closed today, Dec. 26, so be sure to check before visiting. There's not much of December left, so I've included the program listings below.

Ephrata Cloister
Dec. 26-27 and Jan. 2-3: Lantern Tours—This year's tour is focused on the Great Comet of 1743 (read more about the program in local news) and explores the reactions of community members. Tours are presented by junior and senior high school students under the guidance of museum staff and leave from the visitor center every half hour from 6:30 to 8 pm. Admission: $10 (age 12-64), $9 (65+), $7 (6-11), $5 (3-5); member discounts available. Reservations are required; call 717/433-6600 to reserve your spot.

Landis Valley Village and Farm Museum
Dec. 30: Winter Day Camp—A great way to keep everyone happy and sane during school break. Cost is $35 per child, $20 per child for LVA members; includes a hot lunch. Registration is required; call the museum's education department at 717/569-0401 x228. 8:30 am-4:30 pm.

State Museum of Pennsylvania
Dec. 31: Happy Noon Year’s Celebration—Ring in 2015 without staying up until midnight at this program designed for younger children and their families. Storytime, a planetarium show, and hands-on activities leading up to the big countdown in Memorial Hall at noon. Included in regular admission. 10 am-1 pm.

We'll have the January program listings next week, so stop on back.

Whatever your plans for New Year's Eve, please be safe, careful, and festive. Best wishes for 2015!
