the magic of Christmas and community
As usual, our Christmas party could not have been the success that it was without our community coming together and creating magic for our employees. This year we have so many people to thank and recognize for making our party a night to remember.
First, we have to thank Clear Water Kiwanis for truly bringing the magic. We could never have done our party without the help of Santa and his elves. Santa was so gracious to let our employees take pictures with him and tell him what they want for Christmas, while his elves walked around and made sure everyone was being cared for. Also, huge thank you to those community members who did not come with Clear Water Kiwanis, but were still gracious enough to volunteer their time.
Clear Water Kiwanis also helped us find the Madrigals from Memorial High School which was an absolute hit. They sang theatrical Christmas songs that made everyone laugh, and lead us in carols.
After dinner, everyone had the privilege of being served Christmas themed cake donated from both Hy-Vee and Walmart. Huge thank you to these grocery stores for contributing to our night!
Another essential part of the night was the band. Michael Rambo and The Jam played background music throughout the night that gave our event the ambiance and upbeat atmosphere we needed.
Lastly, we'd like to thank The River Prairie Center for hosting us. There was little Christmas cheer that needed to be added because of how magical their event center was already decorated. Be on the lookout for more photos of our event on our social media pages!

I just read last year's article from the Annual CDC Christmas Party. For years the Kiwanis Club of Eau Claire, NOT the Clear Water Kiwanis, have donated funds and volunteered at the annual Christmas Party. We will be helping again this year. Please make sure this year's follow up article includes the name of the correct Kiwanis Club. There are four clubs in Eau Claire. Thanks, Becky Mattson, Kiwanis Club of Eau Claire Secretary.
