Christmas past comes to the Mill

If you want a good helping of Christmas cheer, see Swift Creek Mill Theatre’s Winter Wonderettes. It is set in the past, just like all our best memories of Christmas. It is sweet, with just enough spice to balance the sugar. It is light and fluffy, so you leave the Mill with that happy Christmas feeling, and with room for just a little more.


There was something for everyone at Matoaca Middle School’s Winterfest, where students could play video games, dance, ride a Segway, bounce on inflatable games or enjoy a snack.
