Holiday Party on Dec. 10 for Jefferson Lab Children and the Young at Heart

The JAG Holiday Party is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 10, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in the CEBAF Center lobby. All employees, contractors, users and their children are invited. Families are encouraged to bring a new, unopened, unwrapped toy for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots toy drive. Get your child’s picture taken with Santa Claus, who plans to drop by with the snow dogs, Nikko and Tally. (Owners Dan and Kim Young are members of the JAG Dog Training Club, and Nikko and Tally are trained service dogs). Come and enjoy holiday-themed games, crafts, balloons, face painting and light snacks. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
