This year has been a little different so our annual American Legion Auxiliary sponsored Childrenís
Christmas party is going to be different as well. Santa is still going to make a special stop and deliver
goodies to all the good girls and boys, but this year we are doing it DRIVE-THRU style. The event will
happen on the back parking lot of the American on Saturday, December 12, 2020 from 1:00pm to
3:00pm. We are asking all attendees to remain in their vehicles and please wear a mask. One of our
volunteers will deliver Santaís special gift directly to your vehicle.
We are also asking that individualís RSVP with number of children, age and if boy or girl that will be
in their vehicles. We have a limited amount of gifts this year so please RSVP as soon as possible to Cox
(314) 805-0014 or email to: eve4acure@icloud.com.
