Now in its fifth year, Jay’s Christmas Party for Kids transformed the Vibrant Church on Williston Road in South Burlington into a winter wonderland. Pastors Michael & Diana Kriesel of Vibrant Church, formerly the Community Bible Church, were the hosts of the event.
With the help of over 100 Vibrant Church volunteers led by event coordinator Robin Danaher, Santa & Mrs. Claus and and their elves visited with over 600 children who attended the celebration in two sessions on Saturday, December 2. Each of the children received a gift from Santa and keepsake photos to remember a day filled with games, balloon sculptures, singing puppets, crafts and visits with some of their favorite characters like Buddy, Olaf, Elsa and Anna. The event also featured a live production of the Little Drummer Boy.
The Pomerleau Foundation was the main sponsor for the event which is held in memory of their housekeeper of 40 years, Jay Lefebvre and her love of Christmas.
