FREE Children's Holiday Event This Sunday!


Posted on December 4, 2012
The Women in Business Committee of the Pike County Chamber of Commerce is hosting their 2nd Annual Children's Holiday Event on Sunday, December 9th at the Best Western Inn at Hunt's Landing in Matamoras, PA from 2:00p.m. to 4:00p.m. It is FREE for kids who must be accompanied by an adult and reservations are suggested by calling 570-296-8700. This wonderful community event for kids from all surrounding areas is being sponsored by J-Angelo Event Planning, Pike County Light & Power Company and Price Chopper of Matamoras.

Every child will be able to make and decorate an ornament, there will be milk and cookies for the kids and coffee for the adults. The kids will be able to sing along to holiday music, meet and tell Santa their "wish list" and this year we have award winning photographer Diane Bollen from Dragonfly Studio www.dragonflystudiocafe.com on hand to provide photos with Santa or parents can bring their own cameras.

This event was so successful last year that we have moved it to the large ball room to accommodate more. It is a great way for parents, aunts, uncles or even grandparents to take some time out of their busy holiday schedules and spend quality time with the kids making great memories and bring home the ornaments to hang on the tree each year!

We will also be accepting donations of non-perishable, non-expired food pantry items or gift cards for local families in need. We look forward to seeing all of the happy kids and families again this year.
