Pastor Chuck Forbes’s Christmas Decorations

On November 11, 2018, in Events, by MUMC

The late Rev. Charles Forbes, former pastor of the Minetto United Methodist Church, loved decorating his home for Christmas. It had been his family’s tradition and he continued collecting and displaying Christmas decorations throughout his life. While at Minetto, he had at least a dozen fully decorated Christmas trees, one in every room of the parsonage. Additionally, there were angels, nut crackers, figurines, Precious Moments, plates, miniature villages and houses, wreaths, garlands, and other ornaments.

Pastor Forbes died in July and his sisters left all of his Christmas trees and decorations for the church to sell as a fundraiser. They will be available for public inspection and purchase at the church on Saturday, December 1, from 9:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.

The building is fully accessible and is located at the corner of State Route 48 and County Route 8, one block south of the Stewarts Shop, midway between Oswego and Fulton, in the village of Minetto. Its physical address for GPS purposes is 2433 County Route 8, Oswego, NY 13126.
