A 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational organization, MFA's mission is to create, provide, and expand positively life-chang- ing experiences through music for all.

Hills and Dales Estate will cap a year- long celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Fuller E. Callaway family home with Christmas tours recalling the landmark home's completion in 1916. The historic Georgian Italian villa will be decorated throughout with fresh plants, flowers and evergreens, including a living room Christmas tree styled circa 1916 in honor of the centennial. A fanciful scaled gingerbread house replicating the Callaway home will be on display in the Palm Room. "Visitors love our fresh decorations, which are rarely seen in historical home tours today," said David Brown, staff horticultur- ist and floral designer. "Fresh wreaths and swags are purchased, but many decorations are created from our own garden, including arrangements throughout the house." Beginning Dec. 3, Christmas tours will be offered Tuesday - Saturday through Dec. 30, except Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, when the home will be closed. The tour expe- rience will include classic Christmas melodies and fresh homemade tea cakes baked using Mrs. Callaway's recipe. Another popular event at the estate will be the Children's Christmas Celebration on Saturday, Dec. 17, 10 am- 1 p.m. During this free event, children can decorate ginger- bread houses and make crafts at the visitor center. "The children love getting creative with all the different candies we have. It's excit- ing to see how each house turns out so dif- ferent and most importantly how proud each child is of their very own creation." said Joanna Baxter, who oversees the event. "This year we are creating about 250 houses, and we usually run out, so make sure to come early!" In addition to the crafts, Santa will be on hand to greet youngsters from 10 - 11 a.m., along with live reindeer from 10 - noon. At 11 a.m., Mama Jama will tell Christmas stories and local music educator Robin Treadwell will host a holiday sing-a-long.
