given to children at Head Start or to families who come into the

Children who sat on Santa's lap could tell him what they want for
Christmas and get their picture taken with him.
Leslie Keller, recruitment coordinator for CAPCIL's Head Start
program had an information table telling about their many resources.
Sponsors helping making the day possible were St. John United Church of Christ,
who donated coats, the Lincoln Kiwanis Club, Lincoln Elks Club #914, the Lincoln
Rotary Club, Atlanta Rotary Club, LCHS Culinary Arts Program, and a very
generous anonymous donor.
Many families enjoyed the annual event that helps kick off the holiday season.
