The ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Board of Oswego will sponsor a holiday crafts program for children in grades kindergarten through grade six on Sunday, December 20th at the Butch Ponzi Recreation Center, Fort Ontario. All craft supplies are provided free of charge. Volunteers will demonstrate and help children assemble various crafts including jeweled ornaments, wooden ornaments, snowmen, and a snow cone tree. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Crafting begins at 2:00 and will continue until craft supplies are gone or 4:00. Activities are available on a first come, first serve basis.
This program was funded through monies raised by the ChildrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Board that are committed to remain within Oswego County to foster the well being and cultural needs of all children in the local community. Fundraisers, like the groupÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s recent poinsettia sale, are dedicated to projects like the craft program.
The group will also sponsor a free youth skating night at the SUNY Oswego Campus Center Ice Arena on Tuesday, December 29th from 6:30 to 9:00. This program is also offered free Oswego County children. Look for more information on this upcoming event.
