Kids' Happenings

Holiday Sing-Along with Santa & Mrs. Claus

For everyone who still believes in the magic of Santa!

Monday, December 12, 2016  6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Help us sing our Christmas Carols loud and clear so that Santa can find his way here for a visit. Join us outside in the Children's Garden at 6 p.m. for caroling, cookies, hot cocoa and a live reindeer. Then go inside for crafts and a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus!  

Parents desiring photos of their child with Santa and Mrs. Claus are asked to bring their own camera. 

To help us know how many supplies to buy, please sign up here if you're interested in attending.
