Children’s Christmas Party at Byron Station


After a long year of safe and error-free performance at Byron Generating Big Bear and girl.JPGStation, employees got a chance on Dec. 1 to have some fun with their kids and grandkids at the annual Byron Station Children's Christmas Party. More than two dozen volunteers helped organize an event for more than 300 children – and the smiles were plentiful!

Guests toured their children through a number of activities, including a photo booth, balloon artists, crafts, games, and of course, photos with Santa. Visitors enjoyed gourmet cookies, and also purchased raffle tickets for some great prizes.

Thanks again to all the volunteers and to Goodwill Committee President Angela Bertolozzi, whose talents will be missed as she heads to Quad Cities to start a new position as a FLS.
