Christmas at the Library, That’s a Wrap
With our feet firmly planted into 2012, we thought we’d take the time to give you a short recap of Christmas at the Library 2011. We had such a blessed time throughout the month of December, meeting many of you and your families. (*If you weren’t able to make it, we look forward to meeting you sometime in 2012!).
More than 53,000 guests visited during Christmas at the Library. Here are some other numbers we thought would be of interest:
- 380 seasonal volunteers, in addition to our 270 active volunteers
- 48 carolers/performers
- 137 group tours
- 10,000 carriage rides
- 400 gingerbread cookies
- 300 pumpkin rolls
- 5,000 cups of hot chocolate
- 450 cinnamon rolls
- 4,300 Mother Graham’s Chicken Salad Sandwiches
But, of all those numbers, the most important are the 84 people who made a decision to accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and the 120 individuals who recommitted their lives to Him. That’s why we have Christmas at the Library. It’s an opportunity to focus on the true meaning of Christmas…Jesus!
Now, it’s time to start planning and preparing for December 2012 – our 5th annual Christmas at the Library.
