River Community Center hosts Christmas cookie party

BALDWIN — The smiles on the faces of kids enjoying some Christmas fun at the River Community Center is one of the reasons organizers of the new center love what they are doing for the community. 

On Saturday, the River Community Center, south of Baldwin, invited kids and families to enjoy a time of decorating Christmas cookies, munch on snacks, work on crafts, play around in the recreation room and even visit Santa. 

The event was hosted by the River Community Center and Seeds of Promise Family Resource Center. 

River Community Center Director Debbie Alley said the Christmas Cookie Party was a success. 

"I think everything went great," she said. "We had about 20 kids and a lot of adults too. We will probably put this on the calendar for next year."
