The Round Hill community will celebrate “Holidays in Round Hill” on Saturday, December 7, with an array of activities.
On Saturday afternoon, the Round Hill Arts Center will offer a special family ornament workshop from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. All ages are welcome; children under seven should have adult assistance. The workshop costs $25, which includes refreshments and all materials for four different ornaments. The Round Hill Arts Center is located in the Hill High Orchards complex on Route 7 just west of Round Hill. Register by calling 540-338-5022 or visiting www.roundhillartscenter.org. While at Hill High, be sure to visit the Country Store and the Gateway Gallery for unique locally produced gifts, and leave time to enjoy a glass of mulled wine by the fire at Bogati Bodega.
As night begins to fall, the community is invited to gather for the annual Tree Lighting in the Round Hill Town Park. The free event, organized by the Round Hill Junior Women’s Group, will feature hot chocolate from Savoir Fare, baked goods and crafts from 4:00-5:30 p.m. Members of Woodgrove High School Chorus will entertain with a selection of holiday songs. A special guest will arrive at dusk by fire truck to greet youngsters and the young at heart and then help magically light the town Christmas tree. Donations of new, unwrapped toys will be collected for Toys for Tots, and non-perishable food items will be donated to Loudoun Interfaith Relief.
From the Town Park, the community is invited to cross the street to the Fire Hall where members of the Round Hill Volunteer Fire Department will be serving dinner from 5:30-7:00 p.m. The dinner will include hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, dessert and beverages for a free-will donation. All proceeds go to the RHVFD. Santa will be there visiting with children. Donations for Toys for Tots and non-perishable food items will be accepted.
