A Florida Christmas Remembered was a great success!
Another successful event is complete ... our Florida Christmas Remembered took place this past Saturday... leaving us with lots of fond and fun memories! Congratulations to the Porter Family from Ormond Beach--winners of the $50 Family Membership giveaway! Hats off to Hazel Stanley Stewart of Port Orange - for winning the Cutest Elf Contest (she is the second one in from the right in the photo). The voting was close for the winners of our decorating contest but the $100 Friends Membership goes to the Pierson Garden Club who beat out DeLeon Springs Garden Club by just 4 votes! The Rose Circle from Deland took third place with a close finish. All of the decorations were beautiful and we are so appreciative for these ladies' contributions of time and talents helping us to make our buildings festive and fabulous for all our visitors! The kiddos had lots of fun making crafts and visiting with Santa and Mrs Claus! Many thanks to all of our musical friends that also volunteered their time to come out an provide and afternoon of great entertainment. And of course also to our elves in the kitchens and our demonstrators around the grounds, we couldn't do it without you! The Second Saturday Market was a success as well and we are looking forward to the next one on January 9th! To all of our friends and visitors - we hope you had a great dayat Barberville and wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
