Help Decorate Holiday Store Windows
November 17-18, 6-7:30pm
Thank you to member Dawn Michelle who is volunteering her time and taking a turn to dress up the front window displays for the Holiday Store, open November 23, 2108-January 4, 2019. Dawn would love to involve other interested artists, help bring the community together, and promote the arts in downtown Stroudsburg.
New faces are encouraged to contribute time and talent to help create a beautiful window display. Dawn’s vision is to showcase the creativity of our local artists and create the most festive windows in town. She says, “It’s great that 7th Street is becoming so lovely, so let’s keep the momentum going and support the local business community in Stroudsburg.” Any questions, email moc.k1560885783ooltu1560885783o@zci1560885783weinh1560885783ciMnw1560885783aD1560885783
