This gathering will delve into the rich tapestry of holiday traditions that have woven through the community over the years. What were your family, neighborhood, school and church celebrations? Where did your family shop for Christmas gifts and where did you get your Christmas trees? Did you visit with Santa Claus? This meeting will be a delightful exploration of Ridgefield’s history and the enduring spirit of the season. If you have any photos or perhaps a special Christmas gift you’ve saved over the years, please bring them with you for show and tell!

The Ridgefield History Club, a program of the Historical Society, meets regularly throughout the year to discuss the history of Ridgefield and all its villages. All are invited: just bring your love of history and your curiosity. This is a great opportunity to connect with other history enthusiasts and learn something new about our wonderful town.

The Ridgefield History Club is an informal community story telling program (it’s not a presentation or lecture) where everyone sits in a circle and shares memories related to a specific topic in Ridgefield’s history. The discussion will be recorded and cataloged in the Historical Society’s archive to preserve the memories of all of Ridgefield’s people, places, and events for future generations.
