Remember when you had your photo with Santa; stared in wonder at the gorgeous holiday window displays; and shopped for that prom gown?

Share your memories and bring in photos of you and Santa at Denholms to scan into the archives at 6 pm then listen to special guest speaker, author CHRIS SAWYER, for a behind-the-scenes view of the history and memories of Massachusett’s largest department store outside of Boston. The program is FREE and punch and cookies will be served.
