The ongoing coronavirus pandemic forced changes to many holiday traditions recently, including at the local Boys & Girls Clubs, which staged a drive-through Christmas celebration.

Rather than have an in-person gathering as they usually do, club staff and volunteers staged a safer event where families could drive through, receive a hot meal and Christmas gifts.

On Dec. 17, staff and volunteers prepared to serve participants and greeted them between 4:30-6:30 p.m. with the foods and gifts in the parking lot at the Univeter Road home of the club. A festive light display help complete the fun atmosphere.
