Come be an elf with us and make this holiday experience your new family tradition.  Besides a visit to see Santa (of course you know him!), spread some Christmas cheer by singing carols loudly with us for all to hear on a hayride, make paper cut-out snowflakes and other crafts in your favorite color for decorating, and enjoy a spaghetti dinner and candy for desert.  And don’t leave without buying some real Maple syrup to take home!  Fun for buddies of all ages- but especially fun if you’ve seen the movie. Please preregister, 734-426-8211.
