The Union Township Historical Society will host a Holiday Craft Workshop on Sunday, December 8, from 2 to 4 pm at the Caldwell Parsonage, 909 Caldwell Avenue, Union.
          Children of all ages, accompanied by a guardian, are welcome to attend.  Members will assist the children in decorating Gingerbread People and in making pomanders and various ornaments. 
          Pomanders are fresh citrus fruit decorated in designs made with whole cloves.  Pomanders date back to the Middle Ages, when they were used as room fresheners and hung as good luck charms.  Today, we use pomanders as ornaments hung on trees or placed in bowls for holiday scents.  Refreshments will be served.  Reservations are required by December 1st.  Event is limited to 20 participants.  To register, send an email with your name, child's or children's names, and a phone number to Marie Canarelli at
