Thanksgiving Feast at Community Church Nursery School

Prayer time.
Prayer time.
The children of Garden City Community Church Nursery School (CCNS) invited their families to join together to celebrate a Thanksgiving Feast in Gardner Hall on Tuesday, November 20th.   The children, along with class mom helpers, baked corn muffins beforehand.
 The day of the feast, each child brought in a fruit and they made a giant Friendship Fruit Salad that was delicious. All the table decorations for the feast were made by the children as well.  
 In response to Hurricane Sandy, the families made donations of canned or non-perishable food items that were donated to the victims. Quite a few pounds of canned vegetables, spaghetti noodles, boxes of stuffing and other items were taken to two churches in the United Church of Christ (UCC) denomination that are serving as distribution points in the Rockaways.  
 CCNS Director, Cathie McCullough said, "The recent devastation and loss from Superstorm Sandy, so close to home, really helps us focus on what is important; family, friends and a loving community. We have been talking with the children about gratitude and thankfulness. Our Thanksgiving Feast this year is especially moving knowing what our community has gone through."  
 In other CCNS news, registration for the 2013- 2014 nursery school year is continuing. The Garden City Community Church Nursery School has been committed to quality early childhood education since 1953.  It is located in Garden City Community Church at the corner of Stewart Avenue and Whitehall Boulevard.  For more information about the school and programs please visit www.gardencitycommunitychurch.org or call 746-1756.
