Smiles and excitement filled The Salvation Army at Oak Creek as the club’s annual Christmas Party took place once again. About 55 friends and staff of the Goodwill and Milwaukee Center for Independence Disability Service Programs attended. Old friends greeted each other joyously after missing last year’s gathering. Lunch and dessert were served by Rotarians while the Salvation Army Band entertained everyone with music and carols. The arrival of Santa was the high point of the day as the jolly old elf spoke with each guest and delivered gifts to them. Special thanks to Donna Stresing for chairing this event, to the Salvation Army for set up and the use of their facilities, to Ken Tregellas for emceeing the program and overseeing food preparation, to Larry Haskin for arranging guest participation and to Santa and all the Rotarians who greeted guests and acted as Santa’s elves.
