Decorate a Little House for our Winter Village Exhibit.

Reminder: We need you to return your decorated houses no later than November 4;  return houses no later than Monday, December 6.  We are open Monday-Thursday from noon to 3 pm for you to pick up and drop off.  The houses will be exhibited in our window December 17 through January 13.
You can donate the houses to raise funds for OFFCenter or pick them up after January 13. (Please note which you want to do when you drop them off.)
  • Houses must be family friendly.
  • No base attached to the house is preferred. However if you want to include a base it cannot be larger than 6”x 6.”
  • Limit on height is 17.”
  • One house per person for the display. If you want to make more than one you may but only one can be included in the display.
  • Houses don’t have to have a winter theme. Have fun with ’em!
