AUBURN, Mass. – Santa Claus has been making stops all across Auburn, and this holiday trend will continue Friday when Kris Kringle makes yet another town appearance at the Auburn Visiting Nurse Association’s free community event.
The association is inviting Auburn children to a fun time with Santa from 2 to 5 p.m. Friday at Pakachoag Church, 203 Pakachoag St.
“We wanted to give back to the community, so we will be having our first Santa event for the kids in town,” said Sally Robichaud, finance/payroll coordinator for the Auburn Visiting Nurse Association’s Health Network. “The free event is targeted for kindergartners through second-graders, but any child is welcome. It’s going to be a great community event.”
Children may sit and meet with Santa, refreshments will be served, and there will be several presents raffled off, all provided free of charge, Robichaud said.
“Everybody that comes gets a free raffle ticket, and we’ll be raffling off boys’ and girls’ bikes, helmets, games and more,” she said. “The agency purchased the raffle items as a way to give back to the community.”
The agency hopes to make this an annual event, Robichaud said.
RSVP’s are required by calling 508-791-0081 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The agency has been providing community nursing, therapy and support services for nearly a century. Its board of directors, health care team and volunteers make it possible for the agency to continue its mission of keeping individuals and families safe, healthy, and independent at home, according to its website.
