Mentoring Organization Celebrates the Holiday Season

The spirit of the holiday spirit was in full swing Monday night at the Casino at Lakemont Park in Blair County. <br />
Santa and Mrs. Claus joined in the fun at the annual Big Brothers/Big Sisters holiday party.  Over 100 littles and their bigs along with volunteers enjoyed a holiday meal, arts and crafts, a visit with the jolly old elf and books hand-picked to fit their interests. 

As former Little Sis and now Volunteer Shaina Vasbinder found, "For some of the kids this is only Christmas dinner they have so I think it's important for them to be around people who care about them and people who will show them a genuine feeling about what Christmas is and not just about presents. It's about everyone coming together and some of these kids it's the first time they see that."

Dennie Huber the magician entertained as DJ for the dancers in the crowd! Big Brothers/Big Sisters is celebrating 50 years of mentoring in Blair County.
