Dia de los Muertos:
Mexico’s Celebration of Life

Saturday, October 18, 2014
10 a.m. – 12 noon, Lower Level

This cherished holiday started in Mexico and Central America, but it has spread around the world, and Farmville is no exception. El Dia de los Muertos celebrates life in general, and the lives of our dearly departed in particular. With colorful flowers, banners, and maracas, our volunteers will help children and their families learn about this important cultural celebration. In addition to engaging in art activities, listen to festive music and enjoy light refreshments. We’ll also have a pumpkin-carving station—so bring a pumpkin and take home a jack-o’-lantern!


Winter Wonderland
Saturday, December 6, 2014
10 a.m. – 12 noon, Lower Level

Bring your family to the LCVA to get in the holiday spirit by making decorations, cards, gift wrap, and a sleigh-full of other projects. We’ll have decked the halls with evergreen trees and a giant snowglobe to set the stage for some magical artwork honoring the holidays and traditions of winter. Music, light refreshments, and a team of volunteers will set you and your family at ease, raising spirits and making your day merry and bright.
