NEW ROCHELLE, NY — Children ages 5 and up are invited to create presents for holiday giving at the annual BID Family Day “Make a Gift to Give” Workshop on Saturday, December 3rd, from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm, at the New Rochelle Public Library. The BID Family Saturdays’ staff from New Rochelle schools, the Department of Parks and Recreation, and the Library, along with teen assistants, will help participants use their creativity to make three lovely presents to give to family, friends and teachers this holiday season. Participants will have the opportunity to make a colorful sun-catcher, bead a necklace or bracelet, decorate a picture frame, make a candy cane reindeer, fashion a sparkling snowman, or create other lovely projects suitable for gift-giving. A “Wrap it Up!” station will provide gift wrapping and tags for each of the creations. The program is free and participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.
“BID Family Days” is a partnership of the New Rochelle Downtown BID (Business Improvement District) with the New Rochelle Public Library, the City School District, and the Department of Parks & Recreation. For more information, call the library’s Community Relations office, (914) 632-8254.
