Fun Family Winter Festival planned at Jarvie Ranch

In anticipation of the community’s arrival the ranch has been decorated in an historical re-creation of an authentic 1880’s Christmas.

John and Nellie Jarvie’s woolen stockings have been hung and their table set for their first Christmas dinner in the dugout.
