Honeywell Center to host Holiday Open House
A holiday open house will take place at the Honeywell Center on Mon., Nov. 21. This event is sponsored by Crossroads Bank and is free and open to the public.
An opening celebration will be held in the lobby at 6 p.m. Guests will then be invited to tour the building and enjoy holiday decorations, refreshments, and entertainment by the Madrigal Singers and the Urbana Bell Ringers.
Each year, Lead Conceptual Artist Michael Weibel chooses new themes and decorations for the 120,000 square foot Center. New features this year include a medieval theme in the gym (to compliment the upcoming Madrigal Dinner), a western cabin theme in the rear lobby, and light-hearted Peanuts characters "ice skating" on the plaza fountain. Weibel enlists a talented team of volunteer decorators who spend over (number) of hours transofrming the Center into a winter wonderland.
