MuseumJoin us for food, drinks and good company at Midtown Ventura Community Council’s holiday gathering on December 13 in Cooper Hall at Grace Church, 65 MacMillan Avenue in Midtown.

Elena Brokaw, executive director of the Museum of Ventura County, will share the latest going on at the museum in downtown Ventura and maybe share a few fun facts about Midtown Ventura.

We encourage residents to bring appetizers to share at the holiday gathering, which starts at 7 pm. The MVCC will be providing food from some local restaurants, along with non-alcoholic beverages. There is no cost.

The holiday gathering comes as we approach the anniversary of the Thomas Fire, then the largest fire ever in California. The MVCC is doing a small part to help two local restaurants Ex Voto Chocolates & Confections and Traveler Café, whose owners lost homes in the December 2017 fire. We’ll be serving food from those establishments as well as The 2686 Kitchen and Ambrosia by Caffrodite.

For more information, please contact MVCC Chair Karen Flock at 805-850-2591.
