Milton Garden Club members are busy preparing to sell their wares at Hollyfest on Saturday, December 14, but they want to announce their new location; the Milton Historical Society at 210 Union Street. They will have their usual merchandise consisting of fresh greens, wreaths, arrangements, grave mounds, and mailbox covers both inside and outside the museum. Hours are from 9 AM to 2 PM. While the majority of the Hollyfest vendors will be at Goshen Hall, the Milton Public Library or HOB Elementary School, the garden club is excited to be at the museum; only a few short steps away from the library.
All of the wreaths and arrangements are hand-made by club members in the 10 days prior to the festival and all materials are hand-picked from wooded areas and gardens in Sussex County. For more information or to place an order call Kathryn at 302-684-3804 or Sandy at 302-684-8315.

Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina, a waterfront resort located on Chesapeake Bay’s Eastern Shore, will host the 2019 “Santa Swim” to benefit the Care and Share Fund, a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to raising funds for individuals and families in need in Dorchester County. Local community members and companies will make donations to take part in the annual event where they will take a swim in chilled waters of the Choptank River.
Santa, Mrs. Claus and their North Pole helpers will be on-site to pass out towels to each participant. Following the plunge, the resort will provide a “Survivor’s Celebration” with refreshments including hot beverages, chili, and snacks prepared by the resort’s culinary team.
For those wanting to give back to the Care and Share Fund without braving the chilly waters of the Choptank River, the resort will also provide the “Hot Tub Club.” People who make a monetary donation to the organization will be able to enjoy one of the resort’s relaxing hot tubs throughout the event.
The “Santa Swim” will take place on Saturday, December 14 with on-site registration taking place at 9:15 a.m. where each participant will receive a Santa hat. Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will lead the participants to the dock at 10 a.m. For more information on Care and Share Fund, please visit www.careandsharefund.org.
