CANES & COCOA Bundle up the family and come out Saturday, December 3rd for our 6th annual event at our largest playground, the Valley at J.J. Biello Park. Children ages 1-9 are sent to hunt for candy canes on the field, small, and large playground. The children will be separated into different age groups. Following our hunt, families can enjoy hot cocoa and holiday snacks in the pavilion and “sleigh” rides on our tractor. You never know what special guests may appear! Don’t miss out on this fun event! Pre-registration required due to limited space. Cost is $5 per child. Check in at 9:30am. Candy hunt starts at 10am. SANTA’S LETTERS Do you want your child to receive a special letter from Santa? If so, drop your child’s letter to Santa off at the Recreation Center along with $2 each. Letters will be accepted at the Recreation Center front desk from November 28-December 9.
