Fishers area children will have the chance to make merry and meet Santa Clause on Dec. 5 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Delaware Township Building at 9094 E. 131st St. The event is hosted by the Fishers Station Kiwanis with assistance by the area high school’s Key Club members.
Fishers Station Kiwanis Club is part of the largest youth service organization in the world, Kiwanis International. The local club’s programs help empower our youth to make an impact in our community through service and leadership. Key Club, the oldest and largest service organization for teens, teaches leadership through service to others.
“We’re going to have cookies and milk for the kids, and coffee and coffee cake for the parents. The kids will have the chance to take pictures with Santa,” said Laurie Tucco, FSKC member.
The holiday party will also have crafts for the kids to make. There will be 12 days of Christmas puzzles for children to put together. The Key Club will read holiday stories to kids. The Central Indiana Dance Ensemble will also be performing during the first half of the event.
“They’ll do a dance scene from ‘The Nutcracker,’” Tucco said.
The event is free to attend, but donations will be accepted. In the past, there was a cost to attend the event, but through sponsorships the FSKC is able to make it free to the public.
“Any donations from sponsors or cash donations from attendees will go for a scholarship to the HSE schools,” Tucco said.
Fishers residents of any age are encouraged to attend. Guests do not need to register or RSVP in advance.
“There will be a lot of things for younger kids, but anyone is welcome to attend,” Tucco said.
