Santa Claus will be the reader for the St. Bernards Stories in the Forest program at 11 a.m. at The Mall at Turtle Creek on Saturday, December 7. This event, held in the St. Bernards Fun Forest, is open to the public at no charge.
Santa will read “The Night Before Christmas” and each child in attendance will receive a copy of the book.
The Stories in the Forest program gives parents some quality time with their children and exposes children to some favorite books of local residents. It is sponsored by the St. Bernards Women’s Council, a group of about 120 area women who have joined together in an advisory role to give input on important healthcare issues impacting women and children. They encourage educational as well as service outreach efforts designed to make Jonesboro a better place to live, work and raise families.
