Once again a huge success

St. Agrippina’s membership held its 22nd annual Christmas Program for North End children on Sunday December 11th. The program once again, was a huge success!  Santa Claus arrived at St. Agrippina’s Chapel with plenty of toys for all the good boys and girls.  There were many families anxiously waiting for his arrival, while holiday music played. Santa Claus took an individual picture with each child, gave him or her an age appropriate gift, a balloon and a gift bag filled with school supplies and candy treats for over 125 children. Santa’s very good friend Blades from the Boston Bruins greeted all the families with lots of enthusiasm and good cheer. Furthermore, the Boston Celtics Cheerleaders made their annual visit to the program and added plenty of smiles and good wishes to the families of the North End. A very merry good time was had by everyone that attended.

The membership would like to thank the following for their support of the program, Councilor LaMattina, State Rep. Michlewitz, Senator Boncore, Knights of Columbus, North End Against Drugs, VFW Post 144 North End, Rodman insurance, Balloons over Boston, Mikes Pastry, Umberto’s Pizzeria, North End Fire Station, Hillside Press, Marina Ortega of the Boston Celtics, The Boston Bruins, Post Gazette and a special thanks to Patty Papa of the Mayors office of special events

The membership of St. Agrippina’s Society is very proud of our annual Christmas Program for North End children. Our membership would like to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday. We thank everyone for their participation and we look forward to seeing everyone at our 103rd annual feast. Viva St. Agrippina!!!!!!!!!!
