The 2019 'Snacks with Santa' held on Dec 3rd Was a Great Success!
GCA’s "Snacks with Santa” Recap
A huge ‘Thank you’ for all who helped with the ‘Snacks with Santa’ event on December 3rd.
Thanks also to our great band, “The Stocking-Stuffers” (Jan Hillesland, Phil Stewart, and Terry Biggs), who played nonstop for several hours, accompanying the caroler, Grapeview school children who joined them, and the volunteers from beginning to end
It took a full hour and a half to get the whole line of children and parents (and not so young children) to talk to our beloved Santa, Ron Gray, who was his usual very patient and jolly self. Sixty toys were given to the children by the Grapeview Elves. The snack table was awesome and overflowing! It was such a ‘feel good’ event! If you have not experienced it yet, make sure to join us next year for more caroling!
The Grapeview School gave us three families to get presents for this year; and we were able to cover all 45 gift tags. All presents were turned in and delivered to the school by the deadline. “I’m so proud of this community,” said Michele Hecht, the GCA Outreach Coordinator.
