Ocean Park Elementary students and teachers for decorating the tree with handmade ornaments.

Janine Slayton of Long Beach Coffee Roasters for coffee and hot chocolate, Vince and Alisa Stevens with Cameo & Molly (the girls) of Forgotten Treasures for cookies and set up.

Bonnie Cozby, Natasha Luce, Clint Carter and friends for the Christmas carol sing- along.

And of course Santa and his helpers. Pictures of Santa can be found at Ocean Park Area Chamber of Commerce’s Facebook page: under photo albums.

And anyone I forgot, this was truly an Ocean Park Community Christmas event.

This Christmas as we reflect and celebrate the birth of Jesus, God’s gracious gift, we also rejoice and are grateful for our faithful volunteers at ReachOut Thrift Store. Your time and energy are very much appreciated. Also, our community who so graciously donate items small and large, are invaluable to us. We couldn’t operate without them. To our customers who purchase items from us, we would not be able to provide the funds we do to the many youth projects on the Peninsula. Thank you one and all.

We pray you have the gift of Faith, the blessing of Hope, and the peace of his love at Christmas and always. Blessed and Merry Christmas to all..
