CSC Christmas Party 2013

We had a wonderful time at our Christmas Party this year. We had fun wrapping the gifts which were donated through our Giving Tree that will be given to children in our community. We enjoyed great food, Christmas music and conversation as well as decorating gingerbread houses! Great to see everyone who came out.

We wish all of our CSC family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

See you in 2014!
