Ware Presbyterian Village Auxiliary Christmas In July set to return on July 16

Christmas in July at Ware Presbyterian Village in Oxford is coming back after a two-year hiatus because of COVID-19.
The event will celebrate its 4th year when it will take place on Saturday, July 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All proceeds from the event benefit the work of the Ware Auxiliary. The primary focus of this group is to enrich the lives of those in Independent Living, Assisted Living, Personal Care and the Health Center. 
The event features a large craft area with crafters from the tri-state area, a specialty food court including local honey, cheese, jams and jellies and handmade truffles, cut flower bouquets, and a snack bar. A special silent auction features three unique items made by residents or former residents—a turned wooden bowl, a pieced quilt in the snow ball pattern and a hand carved song bird.
A special feature this year will be a performance by the Chesapeake Brass Quintet during the lunch hour on the dining patio. Lunch will be available as well as lemonade and iced tea from the lemonade stand. 
The Ware Train Club will be hosting an open house in the train room located in the basement of the Ware Mansion. Wend your way through the Oxford area countryside and enjoy the scenery painted by a resident. A replica of the Ware Mansion sits in the countryside. 
A shuttle bus will transport visitors between the venues and bring residents from their homes to the activities. Parking and admission is free. Masks may be required.
