Bring your family and friends to Touchstones Nelson on Sunday to celebrate Thanksgiving with an afternoon of heart-warming seasonal activities. There will be crafts for the kids, guessing contests for prizes from Secret Garden Toys, storytelling with Jackie Cole at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m., and hot apple cider courtesy of Ellison’s Market.

Take a stroll through the permanent museum exhibit where onsite docents will be happy to answer your questions.

The museum, archives and galleries will all be open for your viewing pleasure and admission is by donation. Come and help Touchstones grow a Gratitude Tree.

As a way of showing its appreciation to the community for their continuing support, Touchstones Nelson is hosting this event by donation. Half of all donations raised over the course of the day will be donated to Our Daily Bread.

Visit Touchstones Nelson with your family anytime from 12 to 4 p.m. on Sunday. All ages are welcome.
