Fourteen members of the LPA Family Career and Community Leaders of America helped to decorate cookies, make reindeer food, create tree ornaments, build paper count-downs and play games at the annual ECFE Santa Days at the LPA Elementary school gym on Saturday, Dec. 3.

Organized and hosted by the LPA Early Childhood Education Department, community children could have their picture taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus in addition to making a graham cracker snack and various crafts to help set the holiday theme.

Over 150 children and their parents attended the event, which kept the FCCLA elves very busy.

"This is an annual event that we look forward to helping with each year. We are honored to have the opportunity to assist in this event, which allows for us to work directly with young children. I am very proud of the members that were able to volunteer their time on a Saturday morning," stated FCCLA advisor Cheryl Hogie.
