WOODSTOCK – The Woodstock Historical Society celebrated Christmas at the home of Mary Billings as the museum was snowed in recently. Mary decorated a tree and Curator Larry Billings supplied a manger scene and flowers. A potluck supper was held.

During the business meeting, Larry Billings read a religious quote from Jonathan Edwards appropriate to the season. Olive Risko gave a research report on “What Happened to Men Who Signed the Declaration of Independence.” President Mary Billings donated items for the society to sell and some went that evening.

For a brief program Paul Billings had people recall their favorite Christmas memories. Gifts were exchanged and they included a video, a disposable camera, a ceramic angel, gloves, hand towels, a timer, books, a tin and a candle.

The Wednesday, Jan. 8, meeting will be at the Town Hall Conference Room when Town Manager Vern Maxfield will speak on the changes in Woodstock since he took office. All the meetings this winter from now on will be held at the conference room.
