President MARFC

Another outstanding meeting we had over 100 people with kid’s and parents. Each child was given a great gift from Santa as well as winning a door prize and all went home with a goody bag filled with books, crayons, and a hand made teddy bear. All in attendance had a wonderful time. Thanks to the Dublin Pub for donating the lunch for the kid’s and to the entire Russo family for bringing deserts for all. “Fidgit” the Clown was on hand he made the kids laugh and made balloons and did magic for them to enjoy. ” Willie” the Clown also was there to help with the kids and help guide Santa to the hall.
Along with Santa, Mrs. Clause made a special appearance this year, bringing some extra goodies with her for all the boys and girls.
Fitget could take this show on the road.
Fitget has a great time with the kids, keeping them entertained until Santa arrived.
Santa brought a special gift for our own President “Wild Bill” Branhart.
