Athens Community Council on Aging hosts a holiday tea party each year during the holidays as a fundraiser for the local non-profit. The event setting is at the city’s old train depot which currently houses the ACCA. Not only are those in attendance filled with sweet and savory tea snacks but they also get to mix and mingle with Santa and Mrs. Claus. This year the event was sponsored by Epting Events and Athens Banner-Herald. Click on the picture above for a full album of photos.

ACCA and Home Instead Senior Care partner each year for the Be A Santa to A Senior Program. This year was the 10th annual wrapping party held at ACCA. Over 100 community volunteers came to help wrap over 4000 holiday presents for older adults in the Northeast Georgia area. Ornaments were picked from trees and wreaths throughout the community and people bought the items on the ornament.

Thank you Athens for being Santa to a Senior for to years running!
