It’s hard to believe that the much anticipated Snow Day has dissolved into a warm sunny spring!

We hope that you had as much fun as we did! Don’t worry, we’re already planning ahead for the Bigger Better Winter in Willmore 2015.

You can mark your calendars already the snow has been ordered! Write it down – December 19, 2015.

It was the pleasure of the hardworking WCHA Board members to put on this family friendly community affair. Thanks to our many donors, sponsors and volunteers, over 1500 people enjoyed our
annual Winter in Willmore event this year. Without so many supporters, this great success would not have been possible.

In particular we are indebted to the 1st District Council Office and the Port of Long Beach for the SNOW. Millworks LB was responsible for the incredible stage, sound system and live music.

Thanks to the Master Gingerbread House Builder, Isaac Salgado, and his elves: Hector Castro, Victor and Omar Campos, and Eduardo Cortez, the gingerbread house tent was almost as popular as the sledding! New this year and a big hit was the LongBeach Symphony and their Instrument Petting Zoo. The bacon wrapped hotdogs and tamales sold out, someone won two of the bikes in the raffle and the Christmas Gift Store sponsored by Walmart was emptied out in an hour! All in all a fine day. We’ll be putting out the call for volunteers next year, sometime in the fall, so if you want to be in-
volved with yourneighbors and friends, doing some- thing great for the children of Long Beach (and environs), check back with us then.

Meanwhile, if you would like a look at just how much fun the children had, check out the link for a cool video that Willmore resident, Matt Sersion put together:
