ARCH and the Machine Shop

November 1, 2021

The Machine Shop has confirmed that it will be the host site for “Illuminate the Season with ARCH” on Thursday, November 18 through Sunday, November 21. The in-person celebration will bring together local businesses showcasing their talent, and dedication to not only the holiday season but support towards a local charity.

Following is a press release that was sent out by the Machine Shop in tandem with ARCH.

Illuminate the Season with ARCH is a family-friendly event bringing together all ages, and will have something for everyone to enjoy.

The event will include festive décor with an opportunity to bid on and win trees, wreaths, and planters. Those who attend the event will also have a chance to bid on some amazing silent auction items graciously donated by local businesses.

The event will also include a Santa’s workshop, and the morning of the final day, kids will have the chance to skate with Santa Under The Roof while enjoying a cup of delicious hot chocolate and a treat. The entire weekend will follow ALL guidelines set in place by Algoma Public Health and will require anyone entering the building to wear a mask at all times.
