Kids Holiday Event was Great Success!
The Pike County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that the 2nd Annual Children’s Holiday Event on Sunday, December 9th was a great success! It initially started out last year with local business J-Angelo Event Planning who contacted the Chamber after seeing the original article of the Holiday Ornament Event for kids in which the event fee was supposed to be $7.00 per child. In keeping with spirit of the holiday season, James Campistrous of J-Angelo Event Planning said they would sponsor the event so that every child that wanted to attend and make an ornament would be able to join the fun and parents wouldn’t have to worry about another cost involved! For the 2012 Children’s Event J-Angelo Event Planning also sponsored again along with Pike County Light & Power Company and Price Chopper. The Chamber is very grateful for these generous sponsorships that helped purchase the supplies and food in order to keep it a free event for the community. Some of the families that attended also brought baked goods for everyone to share as well as a nice collection of food donations for the local food pantry.
The Women in Business Committee of the Chamber who runs the event that was held at the Best Western Inn at Hunt’s Landing was so excited to see the 300 people come out to have an afternoon of fun. This Committee also would like to thank Diane Bollen from Dragonfly Studio who took professional photos of the kids with Santa and his Elf for free. The Committee also greatly appreciated the following Delaware Valley football players and cheerleaders, Josh Edelman, Tommy Lee Shelton, Cory Savarese, John Hurley, Brendan Paulison, Justin & Ryan Viscardo, Heather and Haley Connolly, Laura Horowitz and Kelly Buckner, who volunteered their time to help the kids decorate ornaments and it made the afternoon fun. A big shout out to Keith Raser for his generous efforts to arrange the arrival of Santa and his Elf! Thank you to all of the volunteers that helped make this another successful community event and we are already planning a bigger and better event for 2013. The Pike County Chamber extends Happy Holiday wishes to all.
