Lyons hosts Christmas Party for local children


Lyons hosts Christmas Party for local children

Lyons Mayor Christopher Getty and officials of the Village of Lyons held their annual Children’s Christmas Party on Saturday December 15.

As excited children waited patiently for the doors to open, they could smell of fresh baked cookies donated by the Lyons Retirees Community Group in the room. 



As the doors opened, the band “Varieties Music Team” began singing Christmas music.  The children hurried into the Community Room to play games, eat pizza and cookies, and enjoy the Christmas Music.

While the children were enjoying the party, Santa stopped by to surprise them.  The children lined up to take a turn to visit and take pictures with Santa.  Santa gave each child who attended a Christmas stocking filled with gifts donated by Mayor Getty and the Village Board. 

“The Village Board and I are happy to give to the children in the community,” Getty said.

“These events make communities stronger and bring the residents closer together.  Children are the future of our village, and I want to make sure every child in Lyons has the opportunity to see what the village has to offer them.”

Sixty five children attended the Christmas party, which is double the attendance from last year.
