Christmas at Park Street

On Wednesday December 19th, Horace Orr Post 29 hosted Santa Claus at the Park St. Elementary School.  The purpose of this event is to provide gifts and Holiday Cheer to 18 special needs children. Post 29 has enjoyed a 30 year relationship with Park St. Elementary, providing gifts at Christmas and supplies during the year.  It is a tremendous program that puts smiles on children’s faces while they deal with very difficult circumstances in their lives. It was inspiring to watch the dedicated teachers and staff work with these wonderful children! 

Santa Claus ( Dick Hill) and Mrs. Claus (Bernadette LaRoche) were outstanding in their interaction with the children, teachers, and staff.  Commander Walt Cusick and Tom Bell of the SAL served as elves, passing out presents.   The picture below is of Santa and Mrs. Claus with the teachers and staff of Park St. Elementary. 

This is an outstanding and important outreach program for the legion, that we hope goes on for another 30 years!
