Holiday Fun: Cookies, Gifts and Yule Log!

Annual Yule Log
event was a great success! Fun was had by all!
The CPCA and CPWC worked together to provide a wonderful Yule activity for the neighborhood on Dec 21st, a rescheduled date due to rain. Lynn Thompson
secured the Atlanta Country Club Ballroom for us, which w
as a wonderful space. With attendees and helpers, we had
around 75 in attendance. Santa Claus arrived in his red pickup truck and offered many photo ops. There was hot co
coa and cookies, games, prizes, crafts, candy, music, face painting, and caroling around a "Yule fire" of lanterns and candles.
New neighbor Heather Peck provided a
face painter for the party, who was well
enjoyed. Ashley McRoberts played the piano to set the holiday spirit. Regina Wood brought all types of props and a camera for selfies.
We thank our many volunteers: Pat Iaffaldano, Beth and Larry Armstrong, Ellie Lacey, Julie Lischer, Lynn Thompson, Regina Wood, Carolyn Cadiou, Janet Thomas, Tina Engberg, Danna Vach, Janie Kissling, and the Uppalapati sisters.

An Easy Way to Help
The CPWC is sponsoring a wonderful Valentine's Gala this February to benefit Wellspring Living, an organization that helps young ladies who are victims of sex trafficking.
I am sure we all want to do our part to help in this endeavor. One easy way you can help is to purchase one, five, ten or more raffle tickets. They are only $10.00 each. For every 5 purchased, you receive 6 tickets. The winning raffle ticket holder will receive $500, 2nd place will receive $250, and 3rd place will receive $100.
Even if you don't win the prizes, you are still winners, because you have helped victims with your donations. Won't you please consider buying tickets for yourself and also selling them to your neighbors, family, and co-workers. Buy one for each of your kids for their stocking stuffer. Contact Janie Kissling
