Holiday Event at Oak Creek School - Please Join Us!

 

The Cornville Historical Society will hold its Annual Holiday Fundraiser Event on December 5, 2021 at 1 pm. The program will include a presentation by Janet Cassagio entitled "Once Upon a Creek in Cornville: Schools" highlighting the Cornville/Page Springs Schools from 1881 to the present, followed by the return of our popular holiday gift basket raffle.

 

Refreshments, purchased and donated by our members, will be provided throughout the program. Unlike previous years, no advance reservations are required. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event.
