Star Journal Staff
RHINELANDER – ArtStart, in collaboration with the Oneida County Human Service Center, will be hosting a new free community event celebrating the holidays. “Happy & Healthy for the Holidays,” will take place Dec. 15, 4-7 p.m. at ArtStart, 68 S. Stevens Street.
This is a free event for the entire community. Guests will be offered a light meal and non-alcoholic beverages while enjoying live music from Bobby Bullet and Frank “Anakwad” Montano, and creating holiday cards.
Doors open at 3:30 p.m., with activities beginning at 4 p.m. and music at 5 p.m.
“We know the holidays can be extra stressful and difficult, with some community members sitting at home alone,” said Ashley McLaughlin, program and operations director at ArtStart. “We also know there are not a lot of spaces where people can access social opportunities without drugs and alcohol be present. We are offering a safe space where the community can gather and make connections this holiday season in a drug-free environment.”
No ticket is required, but registration is highly encouraged and can be done at artstartrhinelander.org or by calling 715-362-4328.
