On December 1st, Ayuda joined the Friends of the Hunting Park Community Garden to throw a Christmas Celebration for the community. Wow... we had a blast! Ryan was blasting the Christmas tunes. We put up 3 Christmas Trees in the garden and decorated them as well as wired garland and tinsel all up and down the fence and the mosaic mural. Then we moved inside where Chosen Generation Worship Center set up some space for us to do crafts. We had the kids color and decorate Christmas cards that will be sent to the local nursing home and make an ornament that they could take home or put in the garden. The adults were busy making pine swags and centerpieces with Andy Nolan for them to take home. Once it was dark, we moved back outside for S'mores over an open fire in my firepit. Each child received a gift bag with small toys and goodies as well as a nice book called "His Story." We also celebrated Ikeisha's 12th Birthday with a cake that Ryan bought. There were folks from our after school program, community arts, college access, Spirit and Truth Fellowship Church, families from my block up on Wingohocking as well as families from all over Hunting Park. It was truly quality time spent together as a community.
