On December 16, 2019, the Centre Street Community organized and held a Christmas party for the students of Mount Alvernia High School. The Sisters’ Dining room had already been magnificently decorated for the occasion. Karen, the sisters’ cook made delicious brownies, a Christmas tree cake and mouthwatering cupcakes. A special punch drink had been prepared.
The students arrived to “Jingle Bells. At first, they ate, then games were played. These included: table Christmas puzzles, decorating ginger bread figures and a takeoff of Pin the Tail on the Donkey= pining the mouth, eyes, nose and buttons on a snow man. Sr. Carla had drawn a huge snow man and attached it to the wall. The students were blindfolded and led to the snowman. The event concluded with the 12 days of Christmas. 12 volunteers held up numbers 1-12. As each section was sung, they had to hold up the number and enact the words. A simple gift was given to each student as they left.
