For the third year, Mason’s Child Development Center (CDC) is selling White House holiday ornaments as a fund-raiser.

This year’s ornament depicts William McKinley, 25th president of the United States, and the era of musicales in the East Room, which is located in the White House and typically used for entertaining. The front of the ornament celebrates this tradition by showing the United States Marine Band welcoming guests in 1900. The reverse side highlights the band playing patriotic airs for the president and his guests.

The CDC is holding the price to $20 each, the same cost as last year. Each ornament comes in a gift box.

Order early, avoid the crowds in the stores and get a head start on your holiday shopping! For more information, go to the website or call Anchalee Bubach at 703-993-4786.
