We were thrilled to work with Gary Craig and the crew at WTIC to decorate Maneeley’s in South Windsor for their Christmas Party for 600 children.  “We Are The Children” is a worthy cause where children are brought to the venue to be greeted by Santa who gives them a big bag of donated toys.  There are fun activities like craft making and face painting and they all get a delicious lunch served by Maneeley’s.  This year, the children were bussed to “The Lodge” and walked the CandyLand game board.

They were greeted by their favorite costumed characters like Batman, Winnie the Pooh, Tinkerbell, Care Bear, Buzz and Woody, and many more…  Then they jumped into a hay wagon with “Elves” who were volunteers who acted as chaperones and helpers.  They sang Christmas Carols as they drove up to the main building of Maneeley’s where they were greeted by a beautiful Gingerbread Village. Inside, the room was decorated as a Winter Wonderland with a live band on a big stage playing Christmas Songs, donated Gingerbread houses on each table, and donated books and puzzles.

We look forward to making this a special event again next year!
