Get your tickets now for the Geneva History Center's ninth annual Crèche Luncheon. It is an annual fundraiser for the Geneva History Center and continues a Geneva tradition first established at the Little Traveler more than 80 years ago.
In 1930, the Little Traveler's Kate Raftery purchased an antique Neapolitan nativity set which she displayed in a 17th-century French Provincial corner bed. The Crèche became a focal point for a series of holiday luncheons showcasing this wonderful gem. It now resides at the Geneva History Center where the holiday tradition continues today.
The Crèche Luncheon is scheduled for at 12:45 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13, and Saturday, Dec. 15, at the Geneva History Center, 113 S. Third St. Proceeds from the sale of tickets will be used to conserve figures displayed in the Crèche nativity scene.
The tables will be decorated by members of the community using their finest china, crystal, silverware and centerpieces. A distinguished group of Geneva notables will once again serve as waitstaff for the event. The luncheon will be prepared by students in the Culinary Department of Geneva High School.
Reservations are $55 and can be purchased at the Geneva History Center or online at www.genevahistorycenter.org. Luncheons in previous years have sold out so make your reservation as soon as possible. Don't miss your opportunity to attend this Geneva holiday tradition. For more information, call (630) 232-4951.
