Thank You for a Great Event

Thank you to the community for coming out to support our Stories with Santa program this year!  We had a big turn out and it was amazing to see the smiles on the kids faces as they saw Santa and rode around the neighborhood on a horse drawn carriage.  

The Wheatlands Metro District is glad we are able to fund this community event each year and we would like to thank the YMCA for coordinating and planning the event.  This event would not happen without them and we appreciate their help organizing it.  The Metropolitan District would also like to thank our sponsors this year:  Jennifer Cronk w/ 1320 HOMES powered by KW for providing donuts, hot chocolate and the photographer.  Tammy Walsh w/ Osgood Team Real Estate for providing the “Reindeer Food” and coloring activities.   

We hope you enjoyed the event!  Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
