20th Annual Stocking Stuffer, A Magical Holiday Market at the Centre Furnace Mansion
Stocking Stuffer Event Sponsor: Mimi Barash Coppersmith
Plans are underway for the 20th Annual Stocking Stuffer, so mark your calendars for Friday, December 2 through Sunday, December 4, 2022! We will keep this page updated as details are confirmed.
Many thanks to everyone who helped out and contributed to the 19th Annual Stocking Stuffer! Just when we thought the Stocking Stuffer could not get any better, businesses, supporters, volunteers, and vendors came together to bring the Mansion’s special holiday tradition back successfully, despite these challenging times. We are especially thankful for everyone’s support given our delayed start with all of the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic.
We extend our sincerest thanks to all who supported the 19th Annual Stocking Stuffer. From the planning and event efforts, the amazing array of treasures to buy, all the way to clean-up and even the weather, it couldn’t have gone more smoothly and we are very grateful.
Many, many thanks to floral designers Avant Garden and Daniel Vaughn Designs for decking the Mansion’s halls with their contribution of extraordinary holiday décor that will remain intact until Christmas. And our thanks to Woodring’s Floral Gardens for their donation of Cupressus trees for us to sell and to Way Fruit Farm for their donation of wonderful apple cider that steeped in mulling spices throughout the weekend!
Special thanks to our Centre Furnace Mansion Gardeners for outdoor holiday decorations and our Docent Committee for helping out with craft making and numerous other tasks.
A huge shout out and thank you to the Harris Township Lions Club for taking care of our parking and seeing to it that our shoppers got in and out safely!
Enthusiastic cheers and thanks to our gifted volunteer Stocking Stuffer Coordinators, Deb McManus and Becky Dreese along with staff member Johanna Sedgwick who oversee details from sales and set-up to merchandising and vendor coordination to make the event go smoothly.
May the holiday season and new year bring you peace and many joys!
With warm appreciation from all of us at CCHS,
P.S. Be sure to save the date for 2022 Stocking Stuffer: Friday-Sunday, December 2-4 ~ It will be the 20th Anniversary!
Thank you to our Stocking Stuffer Supporters!
