Monessen Library was the site on Saturday, December 6 from 2 - 5 p.m. for people from all walks of life to come out for the holiday festivities and receive much-needed donations and win give-a-ways.

Christmas Party 1
Santa (Dan Zyglowicz, president of Monessen Historical Society) is seen here with Taria Isbell, who confides in him she wants "a barbie dream house."

Lisa Lyons is Director of Full Potential Project, Christian Center Church in Belle Vernon, which is the organization sponsoring the day's charitable events. She said, "We are here to do what Jesus wanted—serve the community."

A coat distribution was held in one room to provide coats, hats, scarves, clothes, and even blankets to those in need.

California University Fireside Singers and Hear Tonight Band provided entertainment for the event, and other festivities included a children's art center, movies, the chance to visit with Santa, and shopping for parents.

Food available was as follows: hot dogs, chips, juice box or water. The Full Potential Project generously provided all the food.

There were gift bags for the kids given out by the Fire Dept./Monessen Community Council. The kids really enjoyed them.

At 4:30 p.m., tense moments were shared as the front library was packed with people waiting to hear raffle numbers. Many winners were called. People ended their evening decorating and lighting the tree, and a bonfire was held.

All in all, the community was blessed, keeping in mind the true meaning of Christmas.
