The group is led by Jennifer McAlexander, and includes many community members serving as section leaders including Michelle Butler, Daniel Clements, Gailanne Dill, Jill Hollingsworth, Kevin McAlexander, Kerri Olson, Dodi & Dennis Reilly, and Jim White. Thanks to this group, and all the other volunteers, for their hard work and vision to bring Central Park to life this holiday season. In addition to the beautiful decorations, Santa will be available on Saturdays in December from 10am - noon under the shelter* to meet with kids.
