Forty-three kids attended the Kids’ Holiday Monday, Nov. 21 at the Peerless Center. Holyoke Chamber of Commerce partnered with the Holyoke High School Catering Class, Holyoke FCCLA Chapter and Colorado State University Extension Office to make the afternoon a success.

Prior to decorating gingerbread houses, the students watched “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.”

CSU Extension agent Tracy Trumper said they hope to offer this fun day each year and hope they see an even bigger turnout next year. Some of the houses will be displayed in the window at Sullivan’s Appliance up until Country Christmas.

Troy Mayfield helped prepare the wooden bases for all the houses and candy came from local stores.
