The 6th Annual PAL Santa Day had more than 25 kids participating with each able to choose 3 gifts for their caregivers.  The event begins with craft stations that allow the kids to create festive holiday crafts including bird feeders made from pine cones.  Following this is the visit from Santa and selection of gifts by the kids.  Once they select a gift, volunteers assist them with the wrapping.  The kids work up a healthy appetite crafting and shopping and everyone enjoys pizza, cookies and drinks before heading back to more shopping.

This event would not be possible without the organizational efforts led by Jason Lee and Brian Mack from RCCC. 

We were also joined by many City Aldermen and Women, the Frederick City Chief of Police Kim Dine and Mayor Randy McClement
