Cookie decorating is one of the activities planned for the Sycamore History Museum's open house.

SYCAMORE – For the fourth year, the Sycamore History Museum will thank the community with a free holiday open house. The afternoon will include tours of the new exhibit, “PLAY: Stories, Mementos and Fun,” craft activities, hot chocolate and cookies.

This event is a perfect afternoon for a family to enjoy some holiday treats and discover some wonderful stories about where they live.

“The Sycamore community is so supportive of the Sycamore History Museum. To show our appreciation, we are opening our doors to all for free,” executive director Michelle Donahoe said. “The new exhibit, children’s hands-on room, sugar cookie decorating and hot chocolate make for a fun family tradition. Since it is free, there is really no reason to not stop by.”

This year, the museum is also giving back to the community. One of the activities will be decorating Christmas greens, which will be donated to local retirement and nursing homes for display.

The event is free and open to the public, though donations are welcome. For more information visit sycamorehistory.org or call 815-895-5762.
