Get ready for the Holidays

The Bremen Library is still creating wreaths for the wreath sale this Saturday Nov. 25 at the Bremen Town House. They have a large selection available to choose from. Whether you like a traditional wreath trimmed with pinecones, rose hips and a red bow, or prefer something fancier with a plaid or print bow and decorated with natural materials such as seashells, moss, lichens, holly, dried flower pods, there are many wreaths to choose from.
