Here Comes Santa

On December 1, Konosioni members descended on the Palace Theater for a fun filled afternoon of crafts, picture taking with Santa, and candy canes! As members we dressed up as elves and helped direct children for their photo opportunities with Santa, and we donned Santa hats as we worked to help make advent calendars and other holiday festive crafts. The event was open to the entire community and was well attended, with children and their families coming through the Theater all afternoon long! It was a great opportunity to reach out directly to the Hamilton community and bridge the gap between Colgate and the town. We were able to engage with new people and even see a few familiar Professors and Colgate staff who were present with their children! It felt good to be helping in even the smallest of ways, whether it was catching children as they slid down a slide from the stage after visiting with Santa, to handing out candy canes.
