Two Months until Hot Dogs with Santa

Lots of toys coming in for the kids. Games will be on the lower level. That gives us plenty of room to eat hot dogs and visit with Santa on the main level. We have been collecting lots of prizes for the kids, but can always use more: everything from pencils to stuffed animals, books, toy cars, bracelets, games, jewelry, small balls, craft projects, etc. Anything that a child ages 1 to 8 might like. Drop off donations at the reception desk or with Sue. Hot Dogs with Santa is Sunday, Dec. 8, from 4-7 p.m. Let Sue know if you would like to volunteer. She needs people to help with food, games, clean up and Santa photos.
