Homer Smith Insurance, your Washington state insurance agency has been working with our friends and neighbors here on the Olympic Peninsula since 1950. The holiday season always brings an abundance of community spirit and community activities. There will be plenty of opportunity for shopping in Sequim and Port Townsend and other holiday themed activities throughout the area. The Museum & Arts Center in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Exhibit Center is hosting a show and sale featuring original artwork small enough to fit into Christmas stockings. The show will be closed Christmas eve, but will run through December 30. McComb Gardens’ at 751 McComb Road in Sequim will be giving instructions in wreath making on Saturday. Bring a garbage can size pile of greens and other decorations from your own tree or garden and they will help you create a wreath.
Christmas dinners will be served at both ends of the peninsula. A traditional Christmas dinner will be served on Christmas Day from noon to 3 p.m.at the Tri-Area Community Center in Chimacum. The dinner is sponsored by Olympic Community Action Programs and the St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Port Townsend. They can also arrange delivery of a meal if you can’t get there. Call OlyCAP at 360-385-2571, ext. 2571, to have your name put on a home delivery list. Forks-area churches will also host a Community Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The feast will be served at the Forks Community Center and everyone is welcome.
Many area churches are hosting special services over the holidays. You can find listings for Port Townsend area services at this link from the Port Townsend Leader. A similar listing for the Sequim area is published in the Gazette. Find it here!
All of us at Homer Smith Insurance wish you the very best in this Holiday Season and for the coming year!
