Kids have sweet time!

The Cap-C program leverages federal dollars to provide preschool family oriented activities in Rock Creek.

The CAP-C program in Rock Creek has been hosting events for young families this year—their most recent was a cookie decorating party followed by some tobogganing.

A sweet time was had by all who turned up at the cookie decorating event sponsored by the Community Action Program for Children last Friday at the Medical Center’s activity room.

Some of the children took advantage of the toboggan hill to burn off their cookie calories right away while others took time to decorate extra cookies to bring home for dad.

Seven lucky winners took home decorated cookie door prizes.

Thanks to all who baked cookies for the event and helped out.

Our next gathering will be a toboggan party Jan. 11 at the Medical Center. Watch for posters in the community and check out photos on our web site
