NVC Children’s Christmas Party

February 2019, Volume 69, Issue 2

This 71-year-old tradition continues to be a special time for children and families in our community.  Memories of attending this Christmas party are a common thread that links all the generations in the Japanese American community. The NVC Children’s Christmas Party has been attended by thousands of people throughout the years and we are thrilled to be able to continue the tradition for the next generation.  The faces of all the smiling kids who attended this year’s Christmas party tell the whole story.

With over 120 people in attendance, the party started off with food and drink, face painting and crafts.  Roberto the Magnificent had the kids (and the adults!!) watching in awe and everyone had a great time!  The magic show was followed by a visit from our guest of honor SANTA, which of course was a huge hit with the kids!  There is nothing like experiencing the magic of Christmas through the eyes of the kids…we would love to have you experience this for yourselves at next year’s Christmas party.  Please invite your friends and family next year.

This party would not have been possible without all the wonderful support of SO many volunteers.  Thank you to all of you who come out every year to support this event!  A special shout out to Kerry Taniguchi for bringing the magic of Christmas to all of the children!
