December President’s Update

Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On November 28th

     This year marks our 37th holiday evening opening and our 6th year as an independent non-profit organization. Members and visitors alike have been very excited about the continued growth, changes, and the path we are taking to continue to develop the Edison & Ford Winter Estates.

      Edison Ford Holiday Nights has been selected as one of the top ten events nationwide and for good reason. This year it extends from December 1 – December 30 (except for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) and includes the dazzling decorations, musical performances nightly, self led tours or guided holiday tours by Edison Ford Historians, and informal programs in the Edison Ford Museum which is also open nightly during Holiday Nights.

One of the best new additions this year is the Curator led Behind-the-Scenes Tours every Tuesday at night and inside the buildings. These are available with prior registration by calling the Membership Office at 239-334-7419. Members can reserve their FREE tickets in advance and their guests will receive a 20% discount. Regular tickets for the nighttime Behind-the-Scenes Tours are $40 – but must be reserved in advance as space is limited.

      December is also our time to ask for your help as Members to support the scholarship and education program at Edison Ford. As you make your end of year contributions, I hope you will consider making a gift to provide a scholarship to summer camp for a young student or a paid summer internship gift for college age students.

      Both Edison and Ford believed in providing inventive experiences for our youngsters and we need your help to extend this to families who need a little assistance to participate. You will receive our request by mail, or you may call the Membership Office for additional information.

      We look forward to seeing you during December and in the upcoming year to experience the growth firsthand at Edison Ford.
