Lunch with Santa 2017
The city’s “Lunch with Santa” on Sunday, 12/10/17 was a success! The community center was twinkling with Christmas trees, lights and decorations. After a visit and photos with Santa, the children played games like Snowman Toss, Decorate the Tree, Snowball Run, Santa Hopscotch and Pin the Nose on Rudolf. Kids made ornament crafts, created Christmas cards and colored Christmas scenes. There was also face-painting and Christmas tattoos, as well as a cup-stacking demo with local cup-stacking legend Nick Stamm. A hot dog lunch was provided and 181+ enjoyed the festivities.
Special thanks goes to our area high school volunteers, city volunteers Gary Straus, Susan Vanlandingham, Jan and Marc Johannemann, community volunteers Nick Stamm and Mr. and Mrs. Bob Hanes. Kevin Sluder from Media Central was on-site filming, and a cute video can be viewed online at campbellmedia.org/video/10727. Photos taken at the event will be posted on Alexandria City’s website and Facebook page.
