"Snacks with Santa" is Back! 


Thank you, Louise, for finding our new Santa!  It will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2022, at 10 am at the Fire Hall.  If you would like to volunteer, please come at 9:30.  The hall will be set up by the Beachcombers Garden Club on Friday, December 2.

There will be a sign-up sheet to volunteer time and snacks at the Chili Cook off on November 11!  Look for the form near the name tag table.  Please call me if you cannot attend the meeting but still want to sign up.  We will have some children from the Grapeview school singing for us as well as the Grapeview elves on hand to help! Let’s get together for this festive community event!

 

2019 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.
