Last Saturday, GHS Interact Club hosted the annual Pathways Christmas party. Kids of all ages got to do things such as decorate cookies, get their faces painted, and tell Santa what they want for Christmas.

Pathways is a care and education program for kids ranging in age from infancy to 13 years old. Many families utilize this program for after-school care. Every year, GHS Interact Club decorates the hall with a Christmas tree, ornaments, and lights.

“It’s my favorite event because it’s the most rewarding,” said GHS senior and Interact club member Erin Tettoni. “You get see the kids having fun and enjoying the party.”

Kids also got to color and make Christmas ornaments, as well as listen to story read by Mrs. Claus.

Interact club also provided lunch for the party-goers, which consisted of macaroni and cheese, hot dogs, and corn. For dessert, homemade cookies such as chocolate chip and sugar were served.

“All the work that we put into setting up was worth it to see the kids smile,” said board member Rachel Nearis. “I’m sure next year will be another rewarding experience.”
