He’ll be happy to call your child December 5th or 6th between 5:30 and 7:00pm to talk to them and wish them a Merry Christmas.
Please register your child with the Recreation Office no later than Thursday, Dec. 2nd. We’ll need their name(s), age, phone number to call as well as which of the two nights you prefer. There is no charge.
