It’s new! It’s fun! It’s for kids! The Haliburton and District Lions Club would like to invite children ages four to eight (junior kindergarten to Grade 3) to our first annual Haliburton Lions Children’s Christmas Party.

This new free community happening is intended to provide a joyful event for our young children and also to promote literacy. One of the enduring activities and a goal of our club is our Reading Action Program. We are committed to putting new books in the hands of local children. Accordingly in addition to live Christmas music and songs led by Gord Kidd; fun games including the Christmas hokey pokey; crafts to make and take home; and of course delicious treats each child will select and take home a new book!

The party will be held on Sunday Dec. 16 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at Haliburton United Church 10 George Street. Space will be limited and parents/guardians will need to register their child. Please call Tina at 705-457-9399 or Jane at 705-457-8350. Register now as registration will close Dec. 3.

The Haliburton Lions are very excited about this new free children’s party! It is sure to be a festive and fun time for our children!
