Letter of Thanks

Santa Flies to Lyncrest.
Thanks to you for publicising this event and to those who worked to put this event together. My 3 year old daughter had a blast! ... In my mind, a great measure of how engaged the kids are, is by their silence - and when Santa was heard on the radio, and everybody knew he was coming, the kids were at the window waiting in absolute silent anticipation. Through the big front windows, not only were they able to see Santa taxi by, then circle back, then get out of his plane and walk in, she and the other kids were able to run up and give Santa a big hug when he finally got inside...

The choreography of it was a great way for the kids to see Santa. Although we weren't able to stay for his departure it was a great event all around.

I don't know the people who arranged this - but if you would please pass my thanks to all involved I would be grateful; to Santa, his helpers, the photographer, and everybody in the clubhouse that kept things rolling. Many thanks! It was a success and I hope to be out next year.
