"Create Gifts and Holiday Decor With Your Family Research,” presented by artist and CGS memberWendy BLACK. Wendy
describes the inspiration behind this class: "Learning my family's stories from the past has made my ancestors come alive for me. I identify with their joys, sorrows, successes and mistakes. Then they sit hidden in boxes and files. Let's use photos, momentos and documents to create gifts and decor for yourself and family members and immortalize those ancestors for future generations." 10 a.m.-12
