The museum’s Green Tea is a highlight of the holiday season for many local residents.
Catering is provided by museum volunteers who prepare a variety of snacks and refreshments for the public to enjoy.
Museum Director Virginia Pool said that although the Green Tea is a free event, it is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the museum.
And Pool said they are expecting over 200 people to attend the grand event.
This year the public will see five beautiful Christmas trees of all shapes, sizes and styles on display.
One tree stands tall in the center of the art gallery wing of the museum, two trees adorn the downstairs as you enter the museum, a tree is on display in the transportation room, and the fifth tree is in the newly remodeled upstairs of the museum.

Pool said she thinks the public will be pleased with the many new displays and things to see this year at the museum.
Also, there will be a drawing for an oil painting by local artist Carol Kipp. Tickets are $5 each and are on sale at the museum.

Home and Commercial Lighting Displays
It’s that time of the year when the community decorates their homes and business for the Christmas holiday.
Historically the Deming Luna County Chamber of Commerce has coordinated a Christmas Home Lighting Contest. The top three displays received monetary awards to help offset their electric bill. After the judging had taken place, the entries were available to the community to enjoy and see if they agreed with the decision of the judges.
This Christmas season presents a different set of issues. Due to the loss of sponsorships, no monetary awards will be given. However, the Chamber does not want to dampen the holiday season. Chamber volunteers will be driving around the community to identify Christmas displays. A list will be generated and made public so the community may enjoy the efforts of those who decorate their homes or businesses.
Those who are decorating and would like to share their endeavors with more than their immediate neighbors, please contact the Chamber with your address, no names please. The addresses will be provided to the Deming Headlight, KOTS and posted on the Chamber’s website and Facebook pages so families may enjoy the sites of Christmas.
Please contact the Chamber office at 546-2674 for additional questions and to add your address.
