Swim With Santa and Other Holiday Fun

Teriney Grooms, staff writer

Christmas is right around the corner and children are writing their Christmas list to give to Santa. Instead of waiting until Christmas morning to know if you made it on the naughty or nice list, come to the Brooks Family YMCA and go Swimming with Santa!

The event is being planned and hosted by Wellness Director Meg Klenk and is being treated like a Parents Night Out event, where parents drop their children off for a few hours of fun. However, this event is open to members and non-members.

Although the event is still in the planning phase Klenk has a basic idea of the activities she would like to do with the children such as decorating Christmas cookies, arts and crafts, and the main event swim with Santa. The YMCA will also provide a meal for the kids.

Normally, Klenk is not very involved with the planning of Parents Night Out. “But this time I (she) wanted something to do with Santa Claus and Christmas and bring everybody to the Y for that.“Whether it’s this or something else we definitely want to do something every year for the kids,” Klenk said.

Klenk hopes lots of parents will sign their kids up for Swimming With Santa and  the kids enjoy the activities she has planned, especially her favorite part, decorating cookies. So far, only three have signed up for the event.

Swimming With Santa will take place on Saturday, December 16 at the Brooks Family YMCA. The event is from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and kids ages five to ten are welcome. Contact the Brooks Family YMCA for more information at 434-974-9622 and Meg Klenk at mklenk@piedmontymca.org.
