The 2017 Cradle Holiday Party was a blast!

On Saturday, December 9, 2017, we hosted our annual Holiday Party here at our historic Cradle offices. Santa and Mrs. Claus greeted guests as they arrived. Families enjoyed multiple activities throughout the building, such as cookie decorating, crafting ornaments, necklaces, and pipe cleaner creations, playing Dreidel and placing their “mittens” on The Cradle family tree. The sweet babies up in our Nursery even got into the spirit and dressed up in their festive outfits for the event! Our tree was beautifully decorated with each family’s artwork.
 
This event was a tremendous success because of everyone's collective support and talents! Thank you to those who helped make the event such a success. It was a joy to see our Cradle families as we celebrated the holiday season, and we look forward to 2018 and all the joy it brings.
