|Have dinner with the community!
Empty nester? Family lives elsewhere? Single mom or dad with kids? We have the perfect event: the 5th Annual Community Christmas Dinner, to be held on Christmas Day, December 25 from 11 am to 2 pm, at the Aztec Senior Center! Delivery service to people who are shut-ins, elderly or have disabilities is once again being offered. Please call the number below to request your Christmas meal.
The dinner is also a wonderful opportunity to share the holiday spirit with others!
Susan Rarick and Cindy Koelle have been busy offering local businesses the opportunity to participate in this community-wide event. These lovely ladies are visiting local restaurants and stores to round up both cash donations and food and supply contributions so that a Christmas feast may be enjoyed by all!
Although we have gathered food and supplies for 300 dinners, we now need YOUR help to put it all together! If you would like to help cook, set up, serve, clean up or deliver meals, call Susan Rarick, 334-5512, for day contact, and Cindy Koelle, 334-0280, for evenings.
The Friends of the Bloomfield Family Aquatic Center are sponsoring Santa Claus at the Bloomfield Pool on Saturday, December 14, from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m. Admission is $2 per person or a non-perishable food item for local food banks.
Santa will arrive on a floating sleigh pulled by swimming reindeer. He will be delivering treats to the children. A photographer will be present to take the children’s pictures with Santa. These pictures may be picked up from the pool the following week. Refreshments will be served by the Friends committee members.
Community families are invited to bring the kids ready to play in the water, visit with Santa, enjoy some treats, and basically have a great time in the water
Nick's 10th Annual Coloring Book Drive is underway again. We have many new places to drop off coloring books. Last year was a success, as we had over 2000 coloring books with many markers and crayons that we donated to San Juan Regional Hospital for all the children. You can donate coloring books in Aztec, Farmington, and Bloomfield. Farmington locations are Avon Store, Sundance Dental, Barbershop II, and 505 Barbershop. Aztec locations are Aztec Restaurant, Check Cashing Services (behind Hiway Grill), and Citizens Bank. The Bloomfield location is Bloomfield Auto Body (410 W Ash). Look out for the wrapped box to put your donations of coloring books and crayons in.
Thank you and if you need my mom, Stephanie, or me, Nick, to pick up your donations, just give us a call at 516-8124, 360-2094 or 334-7185.
