More than 125 people gather at the cul-de-sac on the Bazarsky campus Thursday evening to officially kick-off the holiday season at Boys Town New England. Heart-warming testimonies from a Boys Town New England graduate and current resident set the tone for a fabulous evening.
Three, two, one…
Family-Teacher® Lisabeth Depina helped the crowd count down to the tree lighting. Then the Portsmouth Fire Department delivered Santa and Mrs. Clause in style. Santa listened to every child’s wish and the Clauses posed for photos.
“We aim to encourage community spirit during the Christmas season, and inspire traditions,” said Sarah Galvan, Executive Director of Boys Town New England. “Thank you to each of you for your support throughout the year and especially during the holidays.”
All five Family Homes were lit and shining, with two of the homes open for visitors. Serving up Boathouse Hall of Fame Chowder, chili and homemade baked goods, the open house made the Bazarsky Campus a happy engaging location for the children and families of Boys Town New England to begin the holiday season.
