Great Holiday Event with APIA & Stony Brook Village
On Sunday, December 2nd, despite the wet weather, host families, au pairs and many others, enjoyed the Annual Stony Brook Village Holiday Festival. Au Pair in America was happy to be one of the sponsors this year supporting the Santa Fund run by the Ward Melville Heritage Organization.
Community Counselor, Cindy Garruba, Host Families and Au Pairs all helped decorate our International Peace Tree for the Promenade of Trees, our theme is “We Bring The World Together!”
A children’s chorus sang Christmas Carols as everyone waited for Santa to arrive. Santa arrived on his fire truck at 2 PM! He spent lots of time with each child. Au pairs and host families socialized while they waited on line to give Santa their wish lists.
While they waited, a balloon artist entertained the kids on the line. Each child received a balloon animal of their choice!
The festivities continued with a parade of big puppets featuring historical local heroes and heroines. It was a great day!
