BES Santa's Cottage 2014


        Santa’s Cottage has once again arrived at BES.  Santa's Cottage gives children a chance to shop in secret for their family instead of a family member taking them to purchase gifts.  Also it teaches them the joy of giving! Brownstown has been doing Santa’s Cottage for over 20 years.  

The SCC sponsors Santa’s cottage and they receive the items from a company in Springfield called FUN Services, who also provide the prizes for the BES spring carnival. Santa’s Cottage offers a variety of gifts for your mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, brother, sister, and even your pets!  All gifts are only $1.

Talicia Bloemker, a president of the SCC, would like to add how much the SCC appreciates the volunteer help from the teachers, parents, and the NHS students. They all help inventory the merchandise, set up, decorate, count money, and help the children shop, as well as tear down and box all leftovers.  Talicia said “there is no way we could accomplish this without everyone's efforts and we appreciate it so much!” This is definitely a unique opportunity for the children of BES to surprise their families this holiday season.
