"Untold Stories":

"Mad Men Holidays:  Celebrating the holidays in Mid-Century Modern Las Vegas


On December 4th, our monthly series, Untold Stories at the Las Vegas Springs Preserve  will look back at the way Las Vegans celebrated the holidays in Post-War Las Vegas.  From fun decorations outside and in, Holiday parades, Holiday programs at school, aluminum trees with color wheels and lavishly flocked trees all accompanied by the prayer to Santa  to please bring snow along with lots of presents.

Joining us in our look at the spirit of holidays past will be native born Las Vegans:

Mary Joy Alderman, Pam Hartley, Gretchen Stamos and tentatively, a surprise guest (who will offer a little history about the way the holidays were celebrated before the war.)

It should be alot of fun and the Las Vegas Springs Preserve will have its Festival of Lights ablaze as well as its Farmer Markets and Wolfgang Puck's restaurant will be open before the Roundtable begins, so stop by early if you're so inclined.
