S’ MORES with SANTA

DECEMBER 7TH, 2017

5:30 TO 7:30 PM

FREE FAMILY EVENT!!

Santa will arrive with all the lights flashing, and sirens ringing

on board one of DCBE-Acton’s Fire Trucks at approx. 5:45 pm.

He will then be carted to the cozy setting of the 1930s Farm House

where he will visit with each child to hear their wishes for a Happy Christmas.

While the children wait for their turn to see Santa, they will be able to

enjoy the Craft Station, set up by area Volunteers.

Parents are welcome to take photos at any time or place during the event.

This new addition to the Acton Nature Center’s  events looks to become a

Christmas tradition in our Community and we could not be more excited!

Weather permitting, there will be a campfire setting at the

Pavilion for the kiddos to make yummy s’ mores.

Thanks to the First Responders of Hood County for stepping up

and making this event a reality!!!
