We Are So Much Larger Than Our Walls firstname.lastname@example.org
Make and decorate a gingerbread house this fall to display at the library. Gather your family, co-workers, or grandkids – whoever wants to take on the challenge to build a gingerbread house! No limitations on what you can build, but there is a size limitation – the base cannot be larger than a 12-inch square or 12-inch round cardboard cake base. The height is up to your ability to transport it to the library. Store bought gingerbread house sets make a wonderful starting point for this project! Creators can begin dropping off their gingerbread creation at HPLD on Saturday, November 25. Start planning today! A great family activity to do over the Thanksgiving break.
The library will display the gingerbread creations between November 25 and December 16 for the community to admire and choose their favorites. Ribbons will be awarded to all entries. Gingerbread creations can be picked back up beginning December 16. All gingerbread creations must be picked up by December 23.
