The Friends of the Fennimore Doll and Toy Museum are once again presenting the beauty of the season to the public by way of their annual Christmas Tree Walk, Nov. 27-Dec. 3. Christmas trees decorated by community members are the highlight of the event, and the museum is also decorated appropriately for the season. Many of the doll and toy cases have extra special touches that have been added for the holidays. The public is invited to visit the Doll and Toy Museum for a stroll past the bright and merry displays, snacks and Christmas music.
The Christmas trees include decorations by theme, such as: Wisconsin Badgers by Dee and Paul Thalmann, Joy to the World by Linda Lange, angels by the Good Sam staff, super heroes (emergency volunteers) by Sandy Lofthouse, Flurryville by Anita Wiest, homemade ornaments by Kiddie Caboose day care, and Barbie by Kathy Brown.
Other festive displays include a snowmen tree/case by Ann Novinska and Carol Jeidy, Christmas Hot Wheels by Steve Cooley, snow globes by Christy Cooley, a feather tree from Diane Alm, and nativity sets from around the world by the Trinity Evangelical Free Church.
In addition, visitors will enjoy toys from their favorite holiday movies, an angel display, Christmas books and puzzles, and miniature trees that have been handmade for nearly every case by Connie Neal.
Jan Adkins has also provided the museum with decorations for its exterior this Christmas.
Admission to the museum is free for the Christmas Tree Walk, although donations will be accepted. The gift shop will be open during the event and hot apple cider and cookies will be offered.
