On Thursday, December 11, 2014, we hosted our Annual Christmas Luncheon for all the people we support. The afternoon included a wide variety of food, music, a slide show, laughs and a visit from Santa Claus and his Elf.
Also, the judges announced the awards for the CLKL Decorating Contest. All the homes did an exceptional job. The people we support and staff displayed an abundance of creativity and went over and beyond with their decorations and even baking for the judges. The participation award went to Furlong and Third. Furlong had a “Duck Dynasty” theme. Areas that stood out at Furlong included costumes and games for the judges to participate in.
Third Street was extremely creative with the decorations and the people we support at Third were heavily involved in the decorating process. They made reindeer from their feet and hands, knitted sweaters with their initials on the tree, and a wide variety of other decorations. As well, they had a table full of baked goods for the judges to eat.
Coming in second place was Wilson. Wilson made several different wreaths that were later sold with the money going towards our Van Fundraiser.
In first place was Station with a “Winter Wonderland” theme. Similar to the rest of the homes, the people they support and staff were extremely creative and involved in all the decorating. Several hand-made decorations on the tree and a bulletin board with star postings explaining “what Christmas means to them”.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
