Join your Island neighbors and friends for a festive evening of fun! Sing carols around the bonfire provided by our Scouts, meet our tree lighter, visit with Santa Claus, and listen to the annual Christmas concert. Bring a few logs for our outdoor bonfire.
Scouts will arrive at 5:00 PM to build the bonfire, with caroling starting at 6:00 PM, followed by Santa's visit shortly thereafter.
This event will earn the Scouts 2 service project hours.
