The first night I worked it was High School volunteer night. It was very interesting because the FCCLA from Mount Vernon HS were there and I got to visit with some of the girls. Darcy's Jr. ROTC also volunteered that night. It was a lot of work but I met and got to visit with a few really cool kids and on the second night some great volunteers as we shook out the bags. It was good exercise too.

Bob and I had to leave before the final event, the Christmas party. They have cookies and punch, music and I think Santa is there too. Anyway the whole thing is a huge undertaking with a lot of donations and volunteer work! I believe there were even more families and children this year than last!
