Reyes Brings Winter Wonderland to First District Children

Nearly 400 children from the First District began Christmas a little early this year with the 7th Annual Winter Wonderland hosted by Councilmember Reyes. They rode sleds and threw snowballs in the 18 tons of snow at Grace E. Simons Lodge in Elysian Park. The children, bussed in from elementary schools throughout the district, also enjoyed activities such as a puppet show, magic tricks, lunch and photo with Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Every child went home that day with a wrapped gift, a full tummy and great memories.
