Galloway Township Mayor Don Purdy sits on Santa’s lap
Senior Care of Galloway held its first annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 at 5pm. Director Jennifer Bucolo opened the festivities by welcoming Pastors Mike and Dean Bult from the Mainland Baptist Church to start with a prayer. Mayor Don Purdy said a few words and introduced the activities Director Erica Spina. The Mainland Baptist Church singers led the large crowd in “Jingle Bells” and “Away in a Manger”. Shortly afterwards Erica Spina announced that Santa and his Elf, Chandler Spina, had arrived to light the Christmas tree with their Christmas magic. The crowd counted down and Santa lit the tree with his magic wand. To finish off the outside activities the singers led everyone in “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”. All were invited inside for hot chocolate, cookies and pictures with Santa Claus and his merry elf. Mayor Don Purdy asked Santa to watch over all the great families of Galloway this Christmas Season. This was a great first event for the staff and members of Galloway’s Senior Care.
