Santa visits Galena Park!

Santa made an early visit to Galena Park to make sure the children were staying on the nice list!  Luckily, our Galena Park kids have been extra good this year!  Santa was so pleased he stayed for crafts and cookies with everyone!  Thank you to Santa and the Galena Park Friends Group for making our Christmas party so much fun!
