We held our Christmas Party on Dec. 10th and it was very well attended and all had a good time enjoying friendships and great food. Thanks to all who helped with the Christmas Party and also the Handicap Christmas Party the following day, Sun. Dec. 11th. Santa was there and entertained everyone. A special thank you to Spartan II Restaurant in Plantsville who donated their time and food for the Handicap Party. All the children and their family enjoyed the day.
