On Saturday, November 10, volunteers arrived at 10 a.m. at DuPont’s Public Works Shop on Louviers Ave with gloves and pruners on hand. They decorated the Advent wreaths that will adorn Historic Village lamp posts throughout the Holiday Season.
The Village tradition of making Advent wreaths began in the early 1970′s as a way to prepare for the upcoming Christmas Season. Villagers and members of the DuPont Presbyterian Church gathered together and added fresh greenery to advent wreath frames which were later lighted and hung from the lamp posts throughout the Village.
Today the tradition survives because of these dedicated volunteers. Thank you Fred Foreman, DuPont Historical Society, DuPont Presbyterian Church and DuPont residents. Volunteers will assist with hanging the wreaths November 17 and 18.
