The Bay City Lions Club will host its annual Children?s Holiday Party on Wednesday, December 14th.
Several local charitable groups refer eligible families from throughout Bay County. The holiday celebration will include dinner for the kids and their families, musical entertainment, individual visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus, and a gift for each child.
Club members do the cooking, set up and tear down, gift wrapping, and serve the food. Volunteer elves assist Santa and Mrs. Claus. Bus transportation to the event is also provided with help from Bay Metro.
Free vision screenings for children ages 1-5 will also be offered through the Lions Project Kidsight program. A special camera is used to take a picture of the youngster?s eyes. Results are immediate and can indicate whether a professional exam is needed.
The Bay City Lions Club has been hosting this party for nearly 45 years. Darlene Krumpholz, the party's organizer, says it has grown from just a few children to over 350 in recent years.
