Many thanks to all who made our recent Polar Express party such a success.  One hundred and forty-five people came out to join in the fun!

Heartfelt cheers to Miss Joanne, for her wonderful reading of the The Polar Express, for leading the carol singing, and for making the night extra special with her presence and toasty hugs.

The following local vendors gave VERY generously to our event and enabled us to offer our audience wonderful refreshments :
  • Community Oven
  • Gallery Hatch
  • Greg's Bistro
  • Hannaford
  • Jumpin' Jack's Java
  • Las Olas
  • Lena's Pizza
  • Market Basket
We are so grateful for your support!

Our deepest appreciation also to the families who contributed goodies as well.  You brought in such fabulous treats!

Major kudos to Noah, Jacy, and Ben Abasciano, Gary, Jonathan, and Bethany Kimball, and Anni Lewis for their incredible assistance as our Polar Express elves.  They punched tickets, counted noses, sponged on temporary tattoos, wrote down wishes to Santas, and brought amazing good cheer and helpful hands to the proceedings.

Darrell Eifert took fabulous pictures of the youngsters, and he and Stacy Mazur kindly aided us in setting up the Lane Room.  Miss Wendy, Miss Julie, and Miss Kathleen outdid themselves with planning, preparing, decorating, and craft-creating.

As always, our deepest appreciation to Santa for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit us at Lane and delight youngsters and grownups alike.

The Children's Room wishes all our patrons and benefactors a lovely holiday and a joyous new year!
