On Saturday, December 7, 2013, from 10:30 am to 1:30pm, Rotary Club of Carroll Creek held its 8th annual PAL Santa Day at the Lucas Village Community Center. 
It was another great success!

PAL Santa Day is an annual event taking place at the PAL Center where the Police Activities League (PAL) supervises children from the surrounding area on a daily basis.
48 volunteers participated and helped 67 children from Lucas Village in making crafts, selecting and wrapping gifts for their caregivers. 
Rotarians donated $1,200 toward the purchase of the gifts.
