Can you feel it in the air? It’s WOW! Magic… and American Training’s LARE Institute Colleagues are showcasing this firsthand as they work hand in hand with the Lawrence Exchange Club, Carleen’s Coffee Shoppe, and even Santa’s elves to put on an incredible, outrageously memorable, Christmas party for Students and their families!
Today from 9am-12pm at American Training Inc.’s 6 Campanelli Drive location. LARE Institute Students and their children enjoyed a delicious holiday breakfast (courtesy of Lawrence’s very own Carleen’s Coffee Shoppe), pictures with Santa (courtesy of the Lawrence Exchange Club), a fun-filled day of activities and good holiday cheer in our Winter Wonderland, a magnificent concert by LARE Institute Student Robert Silver, great company, and of course… lots of WOW! Magic.
The halls were strewn with snowflakes and Christmas lights, winter wonders and classic holiday decor, and through the Middlesex & Essex Toys for Tots, Santa gave each child his or her own toy. LARE Institute Colleagues spent hours lovingly wrapping the hundreds of presents, all to receive the gift of the smiling young faces of the LARE Students’ children, who made it all worthwhile as their eyes twinkle with delight opening each gift.
The sweetest moments of wonder and WOW! Magic, were manifested by the love of the American Training family, as it surrounded and attached itself to every beautiful moment experienced by our Colleagues, Students, and children… and these moments will most certainly become some of their most Magical and Cherished memories.
