Winter Wonderland

There is nothing like seeing the faces of our youth when toys are around.  Hot cocoa and cookies was the delights for the evening.  Face painters are always on hand to paint the youth’s faces.  The youth decorated their own Christmas stocking to take home.        Toys and books were given away.
