The Waynedale Community Improvement Team hosted the 6th Annual Christmas in Waynedale on Saturday, December 16th. Beulah Matczak, Cheryl Connett, Camille Garrison, along with several of their elves, were busy from noon until 1:30p preparing hot chocolate and handing out goodie bags filled with candy canes, cookies and numerous other treats to all the children that walked up the stairs into the Southwest Conservation Club meeting area.

As the children entered the club, they were greeted with a big smile from Son Song-a clown-who was sporting a black silver sequined cowboy hat and hot pink shirt donning a pin that read, “All People Smile in the Same Language.” Son Song painted many smiling faces during the Christmas event. She has been a member of High Hopes Clowning organization for 20 years. “By clowning around,” she said they raise money for places like homeless shelters and Shepherd’s House. After having their faces painted the children were allowed to choose a gift from her box full of rings.

Then, Santa appeared on the scene with a big “Ho! Ho! Ho! Each child sat on Santa’s lap telling him exactly what they wanted for Christmas. After having their photo taken with Santa, each child was fitted with a Christmas hat provided by Kingston Residence on Winchester Road.

The Waynedale Community Improvement Team would like to thank all of the sponsors who donated to this event. WCIT would also like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
