​ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON, A GOOD NUMBER OF FAMILIES CAME TO THE BHS MUSEUM TO ENJOY A VISIT WITH ST. NICHOLAS, IN CZECH, MIKULAS. THE SAINT WAS ACCOMPANIED BY AN ANGEL, WHO DISTRIBUTED REWARDS TO THE GOOD CHILDREN, AND A DEVIL, WHO HANDED OUT COAL TO THOSE WHO HAD MISBEHAVED. (REMARKABLY, THERE WERE NONE.) THE CHILDREN ENJOYED THEIR PRESENTS AND, WITH THEIR PARENTS, THE REFRESHMENTS THAT FOLLOWED. THERE WAS A SHOWING OF THE SOCIETY DVD "BOHEMIA THEN AND NOW."  MUSIC FOR THE PLEASANT AND INFORMATIVE AFTERNOON WAS PROVIDED BY JOHN KREUSCHER.
