 Note: the club is limited to the number of members that they will allow to host this event 
The party for the children took place behind the receptionist in the activities area ...they start off being welcomed with a lei
The hospital catering staff did an awesome job this year on refreshments for the kids.  This was the most impressive spread of treats both visually and in volume.
Barb, Mary, Jo Anne, Margaret, Connie, Ginny, Gwynne along with other workers getting the craft tables ready.  They worked with the kiddos to complete the crafts
The rest of us worked to get the large boxes of toys opened up and put on display for the kids to choose from.  Each child (patient or sibling) received one gift each.
 Red was brought in to help with the mixture to make ornaments.  This was a new craft at the table this time 
 we took a group photo of our worker team ...before the kids started arriving 
Mr & Mrs Santa Claus

Bill & Jane getting their photo with Santa
 we had time to visit after setting up and while waiting waiting for the party to start  
 Note: due to confidentiality and hospital rules, we are not allowed to take photos once the party starts and the kids come in. 
There was a game area that was setup for the kids to enjoy
Jo Anne was responsible to take Polaroid photos of the kids with Santa to give the parents 
 17 more photos (Adobe slideshow) 
 after the party, we deflated all the props, loaded all the extra toys.  Some toys went upstairs with Santa to kiddos that could not come down and others went back to the toy storage room 
 Some of us look forward to this event each year, to help bring smiles to the faces of the kiddos.  They (and their siblings) are unfortunate enough to have to go thru the issues they are here at this wonderful hospital for, especially this time of year. 
 If you haven't had the pleasure of serving at this heart touching event, please consider it next time 

 afterwards a small group of us enjoyed lunch at La Famila Mexican Restaurant
