The oldest and the youngest spent time together with Santa at the Council on Aging of Nassau on Monday, Dec 12.

After a ceremonial lighting of the Menorah and a story about the origins of the Hanukkah celebration from COA Case Manager Arlyse McDowell, the preschool kids sung songs with the oldsters, and the tree glowed after a countdown to its lighting. Santa himself joined the group toward the end of the morning, and listened to young and old share their wishes, while a vintage train circled around the bottom of the real tree.

Santa found out who was naughty and who was nice when Santa Calls information was shared with him from the flyers and website orders. (Available on line through DEC 21.)

We cheerfully deliver critical services to Nassau County seniors in five categories including Meals on Wheels, COA Transportation, In-Home Care, and Adult Day Health Care, while operating two senior recreation centers. We are partially funded by government grants and donations from private individuals. We plan to break ground on our new East Nassau facility in January.
