Christmas for foster families

WINDHAM — SMART Child & Family Services recently held a Christmas party for their foster families. The foster families came from York, Cumberland, Androscoggin and Oxford counties to gather at the North Windham Union Church.

The event started with a potluck lunch, followed by ice cream donated by Friendly’s. After the meal, the kids and adults were mesmerized by the antics of The Tardy Brothers, one of the hottest juggling acts in the country.

SMART’s program committee, comprised of foster parents, a staff member and a board member, raised money throughout the year to buy each child a gift on their wish list. A keepsake photo was taken of each child receiving their gift from Santa.
