6-12 Age Group Small Christmas Party @ Atlas Tube Center
Dec 15 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

I have planned a small Christmas party for our age group on Sunday December 15th: 3:00-5:00.

I know we have the association party at the end of November, but you can never get enough Santa!

We will be meeting at the Atlas Tube Center in Lakeshore.

We have the gym for an hour and the party room for two hours.

Games, crafts, snacks, and the big guy himself.

I know this is a busy time of year for everyone, but I really hope everyone can come! Please let me know your intent to join us by December 6th.
