Thank you so much to all who supported our annual Children's Christmas Party! It was truly wonderful to see the joy that you brought to the children and their families at the event.
We received many needed donations from our wish lists and each child was able to open a gift with Santa Claus. The children were also able to visit with Mrs. Claus, hide from the Grinch and enjoy wonderful treats and face painting. Thank you to everyone who donated of their time to help wrap gifts and put together this wonderful evening.
