This year’s Christmas party at the Adventure Science Center was rich in conversations, celebrations, generosity, good eats, fun and games.

Thanks to the generosity of our UMCom family, nine foster children will be blessed with a number of gifts this Christmas. (You can learn more about our foster child charity outreach and learn the number of gifts collected in a new holiday feature.)

If you missed our time of gathering, be sure to check out these must-watch touching videos honoring our teammates Helen Allen, Diane Degnan, Mike DuBose and Harry Leake.

A big shout to all involved in the Christmas party planning committee for a job well done!
