Charlie Howard, The Santa Claus School, and Christmas Park Lecture
WhenEvent has ended
Ken McPherson is presenting a program on “Charlie Howard, The Santa Claus School, and Christmas Park” on Saturday, September 23rd at 1pm at the Cobblestone Church. Ken is a Santa School graduate and has amassed a large collection of memorabilia from the life and times of Albion’s own Santa, Charlie Howard. In the late 1940s, Charles Howard started to convert three large barns on his farm into what became Christmas Park. This small attraction became known all over the Northeastern United States. Part of his concept with Christmas Park was to give his Santa Claus School a working campus with a classroom, dressing rooms, and extensive props to help better educate the student Santas.
Ken’s presentation will be held Saturday, September 23 at 1pm at the Cobblestone Museum Church, 14389 Ridge Road, Albion. This is a free public presentation. A free-will donation will be gladly accepted.
Reservations are not required but appreciated.
