Goodness! It is 2012 and doesn’t time fly?!?!? The Christmas Party for our young ones was on December 10th, with the usual rosy red cheeks of overjoyed Children. This year, we had 481 Children attend, accompanied by their Families. Made in USA toys was just one of many items contributing to the happiness: We also had the Shrine Clowns with face paining and balloons; the Keystone Kops with their mean ol’ jail; Electrical Federal Credit Union with cookie decorations, Wireman’s’ Brotherhood Fund with ice cream, cookies and shirts galore; and lots of great food prepared by volunteers Steve Langarak, Wayne Paul and many others. The ‘toy corner’ was ‘manned’ by Cindy Knox, Liz Perea, and several of the Apprentices who volunteered their time for the event.
 
Speaking of those Apprentices, please tell them THANKS for their time to help make the event a rousing success: Martin Carroll, Jr., Tyler Cullen, Shane Daigle, Jeremy Douglas, Domonic Garcia, Kurtis Gookin, Eleno Gutierrez, Kyle King, Zachariah Mares, Mervin McKinney, Michael Parras, Michael Ricchetti, Jeffrey Tenhulzen, Shane Williams, & Joseph Zangaro and their Instructor at the DJEATC Jason Ogren. Please accept our grateful appreciation!
