Santa made a special stop at The Club on Tuesday, December 19. He and his band of elves brought their own special brand of holiday cheer: jolly laughter, twinkling eyes and a generous heart.
A delicious buffet-style breakfast was served with two breakfast seating times: 7-9 a.m. and 9-11 a.m.
Families participated in a variety of activities with their children. There was a walk-through Winter Wonderland, where elves passed out treats to the little ones, and then, in Santa’s Workshop by Xfinity* children created a variety of holiday crafts. Elves offered face painting and caricatures of the kids.
The event provided rich photographic opportunities, including two photo booths.
Lucky attendees came away with some terrific prizes:
- Two GIANT stockings filled with gifts (for children) and two holiday gift baskets (for adults), courtesy of the Armed Forces Benefits Network*. One of each given away at each breakfast seating.
- One weekend ski rental package for four, courtesy of First Command Financial Services*.
