December 12, 2016 6:30 PM - Christmas Party at the Old Capitol
December features our annual holiday event at the Old State Capitol. Once again, we will enjoy “oldtime” music followed by the usual hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and desserts. Please bring a dish to share.
The evening’s entertainment will be provided by The Southern String Band, made up of a group of friends from Raleigh who enjoy playing old-time string band music together.
