Take a virtual tour of the Old World to visit the medieval market square alive with Christmas and Santa Claus. The tour features visits to: a 1,100 year old church that has sunk to its second floor; the Church of the Virgin Mary where two brothers competed to build the tallest tower with deadly results; and Wawel Castle, the location of the fire-breathing statue of Smok, the Polish dragon that lived in a cave beneath the castle.

As part of the virtual Christmas tour, the group will join a gala VIP event and attend a New Year's Eve concert.

Instructor is June Gossler-Anderson.

This class will teach specific acupressure points for treating stress, insomnia, anxiety, irritability and weight gain.

  • Gingerbread House Bake and Build: 6-8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16, online. Fee: $35 per family.

Instructor Tess Georgakopoulos will guide a live, virtual family bake-along class instructing participants as they build a gingerbread house. Participants will combine the flavors of gingerbread into a dough to create pieces for building gingerbread houses.

Students will also make stiff Royal Icing to hold everything together like glue holding candies and treats onto the building.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
