Santa’s Storytime & Sweets Shoppe
Saturday, December 3rd – 6pm – 9pm
With the upcoming holiday season in mind, the KCA Activities Committee has made a few tweaks to the regularly scheduled programming. If you haven’t made it to a recent Kentlands Holiday Party, the event brings in over 200 residents over the course of three hours in the Clubhouse Great Room. With Santa and Mrs. Claus, gift giving, dinner and desserts, crafts, carriage rides, music, and a separate space for those that like to carry-on as adults, the event has evolved into something worth boasting about. Unfortunately, owing to the influx of attendees and excitement to see Santa, along with the tight space in the Clubhouse the event required some restructuring.
In an effort to minimize the wait and congestion to see Santa, the KCA Activities Committee, the KCA President and Events Director came up with a compromise. The December 3rd, once named Holiday Party, is now Santa’s Storytime & Sweets Shoppe. Santa will again make his stops by carriage around the Kentlands between 5pm and 5:40pm and then head into the Clubhouse by 6pm for story time and other fun with Santa. Photo opportunities with Santa will occur during this time until 9pm.
Residents are encouraged to make dinner arrangements in advance as this event is strictly for the sweet tooth. The event will feature a chocolate fountain, desserts, and hot cocoa bar; and to keep with tradition, residents are welcome to bring desserts to share. Store bought goods in disposable containers are strongly encouraged. There will be two carriages available during the event that will allow for parents to decompress for a moment while the children enjoy their storytime with Santa.
The Grinchlands Happy Hour
Friday, December 9th – 7pm – 10pm
The KCA will be hosting The Grinchlands Happy Hour on December 9th. This is a potluck and bring your own beverage (BYOB) event for residents 21 and older. There will be karaoke and an ugly sweater competition during this event. The KCA will be providing ice, paper goods, utensils, and oh yeah, the venue for this event. We hope to see you all there in Grinchland gear and ugly sweaters!
