I The G]eu~4Ue Democrat/Pathfinder December 25, 1975 :: 2 Who really enjoys Christmas as , much as children? It is the season that is made for them. Children are the recipients of many presents and surprises during the Christmas Holiday and those in school are given up to two weeks off to enjoy themselves. Some of the greatest memories parents can cherish are the faces of their little ones on Christmas morning as all the presents are opened and the children at the Interagency Council for Child Development may enjoy the season a little more. The child care center on Main Street, Glenville has been decorated with many Christmas reminders and the children there made the decorations by themselves! Many pictures of Santa Claus and other Christmas symbols hang on the walls of the center. The children made decorations to hang on their Christmas tree and have been taught to make other seasonal crafts by their teachers. The faces of the 16 or so children that are cared for at the center, glow with Christmas joy and happiness. They are read Christmas stories and had a" party last Tuesday with a surprise visit from Santa Claus. Christmas is truly a time for children. After all. it was a baby boy hem on Dec. 25 who started all of us celebrating this joyous season in the first place. Some of the Day Care Center children pose by tree they decorated. -State Board of Education The Secretary of State, James R, i~i~McCartuey, who is also Chairman of ~the West Virginia State Advisory on Vocational Education, the council's Sixth Annual with members of the State of Education today.
